Simon, John and Margaret’s theme for today is “Resources and help for Armchair Naturalists” and they take a look at the useful equipment for natural history, but not before discussing the exciting comings and goings of wildlife during the international lockdowns.

While these are often devised to entertain and educate families, they can be fun and informative regardless of age, ability and location. Participation in citizen science projects is also rewarding.
