A wonderful wildlife summer

Ron Baber, who joined the Herts Natural History Society at the start of this year, has spent the summer watching and learning about wonderful wildlife on his doorstep. He shares his story with us...........

This time last year I knew virtually nothing about Dragonflies, Damselflies or Butterflies,  - apart from what I could recall from my childhood in Essex. I'm 61 now so the memories are dim and distant. However, this spring and summer I determined to reacquaint myself with those memories and hopefully add a few new ones in the process.
