You will know that the Greater Bedminster Community Partnership is no more and has been replaced by a new network called Action Greater Bedminster. This newsletter replaces the GBCP Newsletter and is independent, but supportive, of the new structure. We also want to support other organisations across BS3 and nearby by helping to spread information and ideas.
Below is a Special Newsletter sent in by Matt of Avon Wildlife Trust as part of the on-going My Wild Bedminster project (see other posts on My Wild Bedminster). We will be circulating more information about My Wild Bedminster and other activities over the next few weeks. My Wild Bedminster will continue into 2018 and beyond.
Apologies to AWT for delay in sending this special out, but the change over has been a bit confused.
November is here and so are the first frosts which grip both the air and ground. Crisp leaves now litter the ground creating a golden carpet of yellow and orange, and spiders web glisten silver and white as they hang from shrub to shrub.

Common species like chaffinch and blackbird will be much more visible now alongside the usual goldfinch and long tailed tits. But the bird to look out for is the redwing!
