1.    Falconry display

Whilst on a tour of Woodlands the Dartmouth dot TV crew stumbled upon the Falconry Display, not usually to Dave's taste, but what a revelation!  Three quarters of an hour of totally spell binding entertainment and education.  The big birds are not tethered or in enclosures, if they wanted to fly away, they could.  Woodlands is great fun with or without children, so call them on 01803 712598 to check on display times?

2.     National Moth Night

Moth Night is this Saturday 7th June. The event, which is free of charge, will start at around 9:15pm at the entrance to Paignton Zoo Environmental Park.  Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust. Reserves Warden Dave Ellacott will lead the evening, using different sorts of traps to collect moths in the Zoo grounds.

Paignton Zoo spokesperson Phil Knowling said: “Over 2,400 species of moth have been recorded in the British Isles.  June is a good time of year for moths, as this is when some of the most attractive species can be seen.  Many look wonderful and have great names – hawk-moth, angle shades, cinnabar, feathered thorn. This free evening will be a fascinating introduction to the subject.”

Launched in 1999, National Moth Night is Britain’s largest moth survey. To book places on the evening ring (01803) 697500.

Paignton Zoo is a modern Zoo, the Dartmouth dot TV crew usually spend a whole day a year there. Children are optional, adults will have a great time too!  Check out their web site by clicking here.

4.    A night out with Mark Lobb!

Two well known personalities of the Dartmouth Food scene are getting together later this month to put on a fascinating evening exploring local fish.

This demonstration and tasting, which is being run in association with Slow Food® Devon, will be given by Holly Jones and Mark Lobb. Holly is a chef, food writer and broadcaster, and runs the Manna from Devon Cooking School in Kingswear. Mark is a fishmonger and Dartmouth institution who has been buying fish at Brixham Market for over 30 years. He knows more than most about the current and future health of the fishing industry in the West Country.

Mark will talk about the state of fishing n the Southwest and which fish are in good supply and which are suffering from over fishing. Holly will then cook a range of fish dishes using those fish which are plentiful but less well known and old favourites which remain in good supply.

The event will take place on Tuesday 24th June at the Manna from Devon Cooking School in Kingswear starting at 7 pm. The demonstration costs £35 which will include generous tastings of 8 fish and seafood dishes along with a couple of glasses of wine. Numbers are limited to 20.  Check out their web site by clicking here.  To find out more click here or call Holly or David on 01803 752943 or email click here.
