Autumn is certainly in the air but the Trust can offer plenty of excuses to break away from the tv and meet up with other wildlife enthusiasts.
All seven of the Trust’s Local Groups are getting into gear for the ‘indoor season’ and a varied programme of meetings should provide something of interest to people of all ages.
