Chairman Peter Shallcross has commented that January is a time for regeneration and reflection: in the middle of winter trees are at rest and there are very few signs of spring to be seen as yet.
Unlike the trees, we at Tisbury Natural History Society aren't resting at all - in January we have not one but two of our monthly meetings
On Thursday 21 January as Bob Gibbons cannot now tell us why the Isle of Purbeck is so special (but he'll be back next January), we are delighted that Edward Mayer, the UK’s leading expert on the conservation of Swifts (the Common Swift: Apus apus) will be talking to us. And on
Thursday 28 January, we will have a 'Meet a farmer' discussion online at 7.30 pm with Neil Harley, an experienced farmer from the Salisbury Plain who has recently acquired land near the community fields behind the Nadder centre.
Full details on both these and instructions on how to register for Zoom, go to our Talks page.
The pages now display photos of moths taken by Andrew Graham. This one's the Puss Moth, looks very soft and cuddly.
This blog is updated usually every 2-4 days, depending of course on what's happening, as also other pages independently or linked from blogposts.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
