Indoor Meeting – Monday 10th January cancelled

Further to my email giving notice of the cancellation of tonight’s meeting, this is confirmation that the meeting will not take place due to various issues arising from the pandemic.

The booked speaker gave backword due to concerns over the covid situation and. although I did try a couple of other speakers, I was unable to sort anything at short such notice. I am hoping that this will be the last time we cancel due to covid and intend to carry on as normal from now on. I will try and sort out a back-up speaker that is willing to attend at short notice in future to try and avoid these issues if a speaker is suddenly unable to attend.

I look forward to seeing you all at the February meeting when Catherine Artindale will be presenting her talk on ancient British hedgerows.

A chance encounter with roe deer

Roger Gaynor was at Fairburn Ings recently and had a super close encounter with roe deer judging from his photo.

Roger says ” I called into Fairburn Ings early this morning before it was busy which paid off with good views of Roe deer in two separate groups of three.  They were between the first part of the Roy Walker trail on the left hand-side walking away from the visitor centre up the hill before the large bittern pond in amongst a young tree plantation towards the river path”.

A great image I’m sure you will all agree and one of which I am jealous!
