Latest news - details of our last meeting on Tuesday 7th March
Val opened our meeting with prayers as usual. She thanked everyone for their cards and good wishes. We had a book
stall this month run by Maureen. Val also told us about a fashion show to be held in Church next week .
Our speaker this time was Gerald Hall, and his topic was Les Bos in Spring. He comes from Derbyshire and although he
spoke quite loudly we had to listen hard through his dialect. He is a very highly qualified photographer and deeply
interested in many wild life areas.
Les Bos is the third biggest Greek Island and famous for refugees, bird migration and fields of wild flowers. Its
geographical position seems to be just right for a resting area for many species of migratory birds. The island offers
every kind of landscape from rivers and salt flats to mountains and trees which makes it attractive to so many birds. His
slides showed White Pelicans to Owls, Egrets to Bitterns not to mention White Throats, Crested Lark and Red Back Shrike.
In fact I think almost every variety of British bird can be found there and many more besides.
He told us about the trophies he had won over the years and how many pictures had been published in wildlife
magazines. He also gave us tips on how to find specific birds – but of course a lot of patience is required to get those
special pictures, and a very early start in the morning!
