President: Rev. T.W.Gladwin; Secretary: Janet Adderley; Treasurer: Richard Darby 01438 817618

Our next meeting is on Wednesday, 22nd June at Welwyn Civic Centre.

 Reptiles and Amphibians of Hertfordshire

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dave Willis is one of a group of people who have been constructing an 'ATLAS' showing the distribution of these animals across our County.

This has obviously been a mammoth task and I believe it is still ongoing. Quite amazing to imagine such diversity across such a small part of Britain, never mind of Europe. Quite a lot of the work has been on newts and I am certainly looking forward to this part of the talk; I'm not sure if he will be bringing any reptiles with him but I certainly hope so. I wonder which species we unknowingly have in our own gardens?
