BUMPER TURNOUT AT RED HILL FRIDAY 25 SEPTEMBER
Eleven of us turned up at Red Hill on this wonderfully sunny morning. Our aim was to collect the seeds of the Autumn gentian flowers which was a delicate process. One had to identify the flower and then gently shake the seeds into a container whilst protecting them from the breeze. The seeds are so tiny and after an hour I had only collected about an egg-cupful. I was relieved to learn that was about as many as most of the others had obtained.
Harry Turner was very pleased and told us that the seeds were very valuable. They will be planted in the meadow adjoining the Coronation Meadow. RW

There will be a Raffle.
You will have a chance to purchase wildlife publications, Christmas Cards and gifts.
You will be fascinated to see how wild flower seeds look under a microscope.
You are welcome to bring your seashells for identification as you see what the tide has washed up.
