You’ve no doubt heard the famous poem ‘High Flight’ – a favourite among aviators and astronauts – but what do you know of the author? For our first aviation charity talk of 2020, Simon Devenish of the John Gillespie Magee Jr Foundation will talk about the life and poetry of John Magee alongside Squadron Leader Mark Discombe, Officer Commanding of Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (Official), who will talk about the challenges of flying a wartime Spitfire.
We were fortunate to have a really interesting talk and presentation from Les Binns, who is Chair of the Horncastle and Woodhall Spa Area Group of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and one of the volunteers for this charity.
The topic was ‘The Local Area Reserves and the Work of the Volunteers’
Les went through the local nature reserves – Kirkby Moor, Moor Farm, Roughton Moor, Woodhall Airfield and Kirkby Gravel Pits and highlighted the wildlife and flora and fauna that can be found in these reserves with many beautiful photographs he has taken to illustrate the huge diversity to be found. We saw stunning photographs of many varieties of orchid, cotton grass, Little Ringed Plovers to mention just a few. Les’s photographs can be found hereContinue reading →
