Just to put our efforts in context, Channel 5 is running a 4-part series on the Natural History Museum in London - full details here. We know all about fossils of course, being next door to the Jurassic Coast, the Etches Museum et al. But getting to see 'the unique and rare pieces too valuable to exhibit' sounds like a bit of a treat.
First of the series is Thursday, 7 January, 8 pm and of course on catch-up.
Then, by way of coming right up to date, Messums Wiltshire's 'Conversations' series includes Isabella Tree, at 6.30pm on Wednesday, 27 January. You can access this via www.messumswiltshire.com/members-area - annual membership is £30 for an individual, £50 for a family. Isabella will talk about her now famous re-wilding of her family estate in West Sussex, described in her book 'Wilding'.
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.
