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!
