In the past 2 months we have had Liz Holden run her Fungi identification course , Michael Davidson run his Harvestmen Spider Course ,Russell Nisbet run his Autumn birds course, Jeff Clarke (who will be running 5 courses in 2012) run his small mammals course, Jane Wilkinson run her Hedgerow basketry course and the Autumn Nature Photography course run by Margaret and John Sixsmith.
We have 1 more course to run this year which is the Introduction to Astronomy course on the weekend of the 4th November which has attracted 20 participants .. let ‘s hope we get a clear night ! .
As well as these courses we have been running pretty well flat out with advanced higher Biology and Geography school courses since the end of August.. We have a few more schools coming until the beginning of December and that will be us until late January 2012 when it all starts again…
We had our first flurry of snow on Monday 17th October although this did not settle at ground level there was quite a dusting on the hills around us.
