Congratulations to Izzy Fry, who raised some money at the Langford Lakes eco friendly X+ fair last weekend. She is donating all the profits to the society to contribute to the organisation of future activities!
Izzy will be also selling at the fair at Wardour School on the 1st of December, don't miss it!
What is Izzy selling?
Something for free, if you’re 16-25, that is. The Field Studies Council, keen to encourage young people to go outside and see what’s around them, is offering free copies of their really useful wildlife guides if you’re in this age range or working with young people in the age range. To apply, follow this link to reach the page of the FSC website.
But do it today: the offer closes on 10 June.
Here's a message from Ines (from which I note almost unbelievingly, that it's scientific name is Micromys minutus!! Sounds very un-scientific, although of course that's how names are established.
To makes things easier for those who are joining (and for those who aren't too), some info:

Recorded in Wilts this year (page 4):
Young Nature Watch (YNW) is a branch of the Tisbury and District Natural History Society (TNHS). Our first event was on July 2020.
YNW is free for under-21s! Young people always have priority at any of our activities but accompanying adults are required for under-12s. Whenever possible, we will aim to split attendants into three different groups:
- Families with young children
- Teenagers only
- Young-at-heart of all ages
For adults, annual membership for the TNHS (£10) or a £2 fee per event (for non-members) is due.
YNW activities are organised by Inés Lopez-Doriga and Izzy Fry (find out more about how it all started in Focus, p.27).
