Simon, John and Margaret’s theme for today’s podcast is “The Four (Changing) Seasons”. They take a look at spring in terms of natural history – referring to Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” – and then discuss the ever-present art and science connection.
But first, we discuss the increasing numbers of FFON readers and contributors.
Blogs we refer to:
“Wooing the birds” – Beatrice Bray
“A more optimistic long view of our place in nature” – Dr Valerie Jeffries.
“From a friend in Kinross-shire, Scotland” – Author undisclosed.
“Our feeders are a magnet for the sparrows and the hawk.” – Graham Wellstead
“Over 1 in 10 UK species faces a real risk of extinction” – Oliver Cottis.
International Dawn Chorus Day 2020 bird song recording – Recorded by Simon King.
Nature notes from “our Care Home Correspondent” – anonymous.
Helen Jeffries and her “London in lockdown” blogs such as “Tales from the Riverbank”
And we mentioned a new way readers / contributors / listeners can get involved via the FFON website page entitled “Can our readers help?” – we’re looking for wise owls to answer some of the questions the FFON team receive and we invite YOU to get involved.
Stay safe; keep well.
Simon, John and Margaret.
