SxARG Talk and AGM (virtual)
The SxARG AGM will be held virtually again this year at 7.45pm on Monday 18th October. We hope the evening will be an opportunity to (virtually) meet other SxARG members and make plans for the coming year.
As you are hopefully aware from emails and this year’s social media posts, we are 35 years old! To celebrate this milestone, we are excited to let you know that our friend and former Chair Barry Kemp will be giving a virtual ‘talk’ walking us through the last 35 years. Barry’s talk will take place before the AGM at 7pm on Monday 18th October. It will be approximately 20 minutes and there will be time for any questions afterwards. We’ll then take a short break and re-join for the AGM at 7.45pm. Members are so welcome to attend both sessions, however it is a completely flexible evening, and you are welcome to attend both or either one of the sessions.
The virtual sessions will be held as one event on Zoom - link and meeting information below. The meeting will open at 6.45 so that everyone can be admitted before we start at 7pm.

Rare Reptile Walk Report
Paul Stevens event went really well thanks to the sharp eye of a group member who, almost miraculously, spotted a smooth snake entwined in heather. It was a warm day and the refuges proved unproductive . No sand lizards were found, but a tiny common lizard was enjoying the sun (see photo). Paul gave a delightful talk on smoothies some of which was recorded on Fiona McKinnon's phone. Photographs are courtesy of our leader, Louise Smith. Thank you Paul for a great morning. Click here for the short video that will give you a flavour of the event. The sound is quite faint in parts so maximise the volume.
Postponed Pulborough Brooks Reptile Walk. We are awaiting a date from the RSPB.
