David Fox, one of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s favourite speakers, will give the October talk about Attenborough Nature Reserve to the Trust’s North Notts Local Group. Once a busy working gravel pit, Attenborough is now a serene and tranquil nature reserve run by the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. It has become a nationally important wetland site and many rare species use it on a regular basis. Unlike many nature reserves, which are basically islands in seas of humanity, Attenborough is bordered by a natural corridor, namely the River Trent. David Fox has spent many hours in this lovely reserve, photographing much of its wildlife, from wildflowers, birds, butterflies and moths, dragonflies, crickets, fungi and amphibians. The talk is a mixture of all this biodiversity and is illustrated throughout. David is well known for his informative talks and wonderful photography. This will be one to enjoy!
