Gill Barters Fields

 Many members may not be aware, but some years ago our very own Gill Barter purchased a number of fields near Pencoed in order to ensure that they were conserved in line with their SSSI status. 

Yesterday members of the society were treated to a guided tour of the highlights of the fields with Gill acting as tour guide 

We had a wonderful trip and here are some of the highlights with identifications from me. if any of them are incorrect please leave a comment or send a message via the contact us form
