Nature’s Year — John Linton Smith — 17th September 2012

vanellus vanellus - the LapwingWith some really first class slides, John took us through the cal­en­dar year illus­trat­ing how nature changes as we move through the sea­sons. Trees shed their leaves and birds fly south for the winter. Spring arrives and new life comes burst­ing through with snow­drops as a marker for the summer to come. The birds return and natures goes about recre­ation. The autumn col­ours paint their golden pic­ture and once more we are through to the icy cold of winter. It all hap­pens too quickly — just as John’s talk seemed over in a trice!
