The Retford Group of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust start their autumn programme of talks on Thursday 14th September with Geoff Lee coming to talk about ‘Life in the Wash’. Of course, this has nothing to do with the weekly laundry but with the square bay and estuary, situated off the north west coat of East Anglia, on the east coast of England where Lincolnshire joins Norfolk. It is among the largest estuaries in the UK.
Geoff, a retired biology teacher and lecturer, has had a life-long interest in marine life and photography. He has spent many days in the last 40 years out in his boat in the Wash investigating its wildlife, including carrying out research for
English Nature. His talk will be illustrated with digital photos of everything from plankton to whales.
This talk starts at 7.30pm and takes place in the Goodwin Hall, Chancery Lane, Retford DN22 6DG. Everyone is welcome. The fee is £2.00, which includes light refreshments, and there will be a raffle in aid of group funds.
