Workshop on the new reptile mitigation guidelines? Preferably with someone from NE in the right department to listen to the input?

How about a workshop on the new reptile mitigations guidelines with someone from NE to listen to the input where we are allowed to discuss all of the mitigation guidelines. I did go to the last HWM workshop on the draft proposals with a downloaded, marked up copy of the then current draft highlighting a few points which I considered of particular importance, only to be told "Oh - we are only looking at this bit in this workshop, the bits you want to talk about are being done in a later one".

Make it a nice long 1.5 hr session so we can have a 10 min presentation from NE showing us the science behind these minimum capture effort tables and 500-1000 mats per hectare requirements come from. Then we can discuss them.

Hi everyone

Well, I am just getting ready to head for Telford for the HWM.

It would be good if any of you would like to introduce yourselves. I'm easy to identify:-

  • Length: o.a. 178cms (tailless)
  • Scalation: None apart from blonde whispy hairlike structures on head
  • Colouration: Chicken skin white but prone to flushes
  • Habitat: Anywhere warm, dry and quiet
  • Behaviour: Capable of socialising (just) but largely solitary. Can be found sitting in corners or outdoors surrounded by clouds of smoke. Walks with a limp (limp what you may ask) and occasionally carries stick for hitting people with.
  • General: Only known living being whose profile is an exact match for Mr Punch.

Looking forward to seeing some of you

Chris

Hi Chris
 
Ta for that.
 
Would have been nice to have met you and put a face to a name, but sadly I'm not going as badly need a weekend off.  Should make the effort really to attend but work just gets in the way. Maybe next year.
 
Have fun and def a good excuse for a party. Smile
 
Bye for now from all of us here

Look on the bright side we have an all year Herp workers meeting on the forum!

My excuse for not going is that my son needs a 250 mile taxi service to Silverstone at the weekend. 

Made me think though, can someone represent RAUK at the meeting and perhaps we could have some of the stuff covered posted up for those who cannot attend? 

I think it would serve the purpose well if we could have the input of some of the workshops posted up so we can all see it and also the discussions can continue here?

That's so true Smile
 
At least we have this place to share ideas and discuss the herp world. Is a good place to discuss reptile mitigation too (as enjoyed that and has given us some ideas too).
 
Would love some feedback from the meeting.  Very good idea.
 
have a nice weekend Gemma, and hope that the 250 mile drive isn't too bad.
 
bye for now.
