|Bobs Grandmother, please be aware smoking can damage your health. Dave Thomas|
The Members evening again was a brilliant evenings entertainment, a triumvirate with quite different themes.
Pete Gilbert opened with an offering on the wild life centring around an old stone barn tucked away in northern France. Working on A Project of love restoring old farm buildings, Pete showed us just what interesting flora and fauna could be found within a 400 yard radius. Whilst Stone Marten inhabited the old buildings Cirl Bunting and a myriad of other Birds and wildlife were to be found.
|Fiery Clearwing I'm so envious.....Bob Gill|
Bob Gill's volley was a compact resume of his summer encounters. A family holiday in Mallorca coupled with a visit to the Farne islands and some local 'insecting' around Yardley Chase. Like many members Bobs interests are very varied and here is Just a Snapshot of Bobs presentation.
|Bringing home the bacon Bob Gill|
|Stone Curlew Bob Gill.|
|Boring old desert ...........Yeah. D T.|
Dave Thomas rounded the evening off with a short talk on his trip to Namibia. For me going into the Namib Desert didn't sound that appealing, but Dave soon put paid to that assumption. Just keeping to three base's Daves Portfolio was amazing, his Photography unrivalled . The following are just a few of DT's images from the night.
|That Attenborough moment DT.|
|Bring me sunshine.....Dave Thomas.|
I would like to Sincerely thank Pete, Bob and Dave for generously supporting the Members evening and the Bird Club in this way.
