Just in case you've not yet found your way to the Reading List page, if you do you'll find two quite topical books I've just listed - one about the Purple Emperor butterfly and the other by Dara McAnulty - a Young Naturalist. And a few others I or others (have) love(d). After all, as my Pilates teacher reminds us weekly, only 18 weeks to go till Christmas!
The new page banner pic is of course Abby Eaton's of the Hobby - seems appropriate for what's supposed to be fast news!
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
