Congratulations to Roger Newman who is our 2013 wildlife mastermind. At our Christmas Social last week he fought off strong opposition and finally secured the win by just one point from Paul Green.
Other highlights of the evening included three beautifully crafted AV slide shows presented by John Dinwoodie, plus a glorious excursion to the Cévennes region of France with its wonderfully rich flora including striking wild orchids, the latter captured by Sandy Macfarlane during the summer.
Our first indoor meeting of 2014 will be on Tuesday 4th February when Alan and Juliet Gudge present the 'Natural history around a Chiltern village', in their case Frieth, which is set in a fascinating part of the Chilterns and is sure to include a few surprises!
In the meantime, Christmas Greetings to all our members.
