Wessex Museums have a programme of online talks to complement their online Wildlife in the Red exhibition about the examples of endangered species which they have in their collections. 'They tell the stories of collectors and early environmentalists, but also of species that have been pushed to the brink of extinction.'
The exhibition itself might be great stuff for half term!
One of the items is the Great Bustard in the Salisbury Museum, and for anyone who missed David Waters' talk about the Great Bustard project last October, there's another chance to hear him on Thursday, 4 March: Great Bustards - Flying on the edge of extinction.

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.
