Isn't this just lovely? The Guardian reports on a series of stamps Sweden has produced, one of which features Greta Thunberg with swifts. It's 'part of a set by the artist and illustrator Henning Trollbäck titled Valuable Nature.
'The series ... features some of the 16 environmental quality goals recently drawn up by the Swedish government, including habitats designated as important to protect, said the national postal service, PostNord.' (If only ...)
This came to us via our speaker on Thursday this week (21 January), Edward Mayer, the UK's leading expert on swifts. This will kick off our campaign to increase the number of swift nest sites in our area. Go to Talks for more details, and how to register for the talk.
To get you in the mood, here's an amazing video of how swifts really do live their entire lives on the wing.
The pages now display photos of fungi taken by members. This one by Andrew Carter - Trametes versicolour.
Please do not eat any of them.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
