The autumn / winter programme at the North Notts local group of the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust kicks off in September with a talk by Tim Sexton on ‘A Year at Rutland Water’.
You may already know Tim. He was a familiar face in the Idle Valley Centre, when he worked there for Notts Wildlife Trust, before he moved to Rutland Water to become the Species and Recording Officer.
Tim clearly enjoys his role at this beautiful reserve and is keen to share his enjoyment and experiences of it: “Rutland Water is perhaps best known for its bird life. With over 20,000 waterfowl visiting the site in the winter, it is an internationally important wetland,” he said. “Coupled with the success of the Osprey and Water Vole reintroduction projects, the reserve has gone from strength to strength in the 45 years of its existence.
“I will cover a year at Rutland Water, and show you that there is more to Rutland than just birds.”
This meeting will be held at Idle Valley Centre starting at 7.15pm on Thursday 14th September. Entry costs £3.00, to include tea and biscuits. All welcome; no need to book.
