Eyes on Wildlife

We're running a Wildlife Weekend from Friday 15 June to Sunday 17 June.

The weekend will start with An evening with Dominic Couzens, a well-known nature writer who has written many books and articles, who will give a talk called Birds behaving badly. (See here for Dominic's web-page). The evening, which will be at Burtle Village Hall, will include a full supper.

Throughout the weekend there will be a wildlife photography exhibition at Shapwick Church. The exhibiton will be free to enter, and there will be cafe running in the church at the same time (Friday and Saturday: 11 to 5; Sunday: 2 to 5.)

If you would like your best photos of Somerset wildlife to be included, then please send up to three hardcopy photos (preferably around 8" x 10" in size) to the address at the foot of the page.

On the Saturday evening there will be a Muddy Church - an outdoor version of Messy Church - which will take place at the west end of Shapwick Heath nature reserve.

For the early risers on the Sunday morning, there will be a birding walk led by Alison Everitt, who has led many walks for the Somerset Ornithological Society. This will be followed by a full cooked breakfast at Ashcott village hall (probably).

The services on Sunday will be in a Celtic style, and will focus on God's creation. These will be at 10:30 at the church in Chilton Polden, and at 6:30 at the Ashcott playing field.

Booking details for the evening with Dominic Couzens and the walk + breakfast to be announced later.
