We regret that the meetings on the Barnsley Nats programme for Wednesday 18 March, 1 April and 22 April will not take place; and field visits are suspended. In the meantime look out for shared news and information.
It’s a result of the escalation in the Covid-19 virus situation and government advice.
Wednesday 4th March The wildlife photographer, John Gardener, will be with us again. With a compilation of wildlife photographs. There are always great images and John gives quite some insight into both the wildlife and how he takes the photographs.
On Wednesday 5 February, we have a presentation on ‘Hedgerows in the Landscape’ by Catherine Artindale. It covers their history and importance in the landscape as well as their natural history. Catherine led two very popular and informative field visits last year – to hedgerows in the Stairfoot and Hoyland areas. Where we tested out the Hooper hypothesis on dating a hedgerow. It will be interesting to hear more, from Catherine, about this topic.
Room 11, Barnsley Town Hall, 7 pm, Wednesday 5 February Experience Barnsley Entrance. The security staff will advise you on the room number; if we have had to move for any reason.
Wednesday January 22nd. With the diversity of our members personal topics being so vast, this is a highly interesting evening. Filled with short talks, photo and video clips, as well as hands -on samples for us to observe. Fell free to add to the evening or just come and see what others have brought along.
Our members presentation evening was, as usual, action packed with a wide range of topics. Both hands-on and projected images. May I offer a very big thank you to everybody for their presentations.
This coming Wednesday December 11th we have our Christmas Social. A selection of food will be provided by members of the committee, but you are welcome to bring something along too. We have also arranged tea, coffee and soft drink.
Our next Barnsley Naturalists meeting is Wednesday 27th November.
Tom Aspinall, from Moors for the Future, is our guest speaker for the evening. Tom is giving a talk on bumblebees and solitary bees. This will include identifying the different species, where you may find them, their behaviour and life-cycle. Lots to interest us. All welcome, Barnsley Town Hall, 7pm.
