March 20th 2017    Getting a buzz from bees and beekeeping, By Anne and Rob Mason

Local beekeepers Anne and Rob tell us about the amazing world of the bee. Discover what makes a bee “a bee,” why they buzz and do they really hibernate? Also find out why bees are so crucial to the crops we all depend upon for our food.

April 24th 2017      Bird identification - a new look, By Paul Stancliffe

Paul is the public face of the British Trust for Ornithology and a hugely experienced birdwatcher. He is the author of two new field guides and regularly writes for the national press and birding magazines. We will all learn how to look at birds differently, improving our identification skills, no matter how experienced we are. Even Chris Packham turns to local lad Paul for inspiration (This meeting includes our brief AGM and remembers our founder Keith Corbett).
