HNHS / Herts Bird Club Autumn Meeting & AGM

HNHS members and non-members are warmly invited to join us from 2 to 5.30pm on Saturday 7 October for the Autumn Meeting and AGM. We are once more grateful to Affinity Water for agreeing to host the meeting at their offices in Tamblin Way Hatfield AL10 9EZ

This year's programme of wildlife talks includes news of the positive part that anglers are playing in nature conservation in the Colne Valley and a landscape-scale assessment of Water Voles along the River Lea. A popular community approach to conservation being applied in St Albans will be described by its founder.

Please note that AGM papers, including proposed constitutional amendments, were emailed to members on Tuesday 12 September (or posted to those not on email). There will be a £5 entry charge for the whole meeting, but no charge for members attending the AGM only. 

Celebrating the life and achievements of Trevor James (1947 - 2020)

The many natural history achievements of outstanding Hertfordshire naturalist, Trevor James, were celebrated at a conference on Saturday 9 September.

Despite exceptionally hot weather, an audience of more than 50 HNHS/Bird Club members and friends enjoyed a day of talks at Redbourn Parish Centre. These related to Trevor's national contribution to biological recording and his particular areas of wildlife interest.

For those who were unable to attend, links to video recordings of the tributes paid and the main presentations can be found below.
