We are sad to report the death of former HNHS Secretary John Scivyer, who died peacefully at home on 26 September after a long battle with renal failure.
John is remembered as a kind, generous supporter of the Society's work and – with his wife Doreen – a regular attender at meetings until they moved from their home in Potters Bar to Rugby in 2014. He was Hon. Secretary of the HNHS from 1991 to 1999 and also volunteer warden of the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust's nature reserve at Fir and Pond Wood for many years.
Michael Clark, the distinguished Hertfordshire natural historian, has chosen 'Tewin Orchard and a Life of Badgers' as his title for the 2017 Gerald Salisbury Memorial Lecture. The lecture is jointly organised by the HNHS and Welwyn Natural History Society and will take place at 8pm on Wednesday 22 November at Welwyn Civic Centre.
Michael is the author of one of the most popular and authoritative guides to badgers in the UK. Visit our meetings page for further information about the lecture.
An estimated 3,000 people came together over the weekend of 29 and 30 July to celebrate the variety of local wildlife. The Festival of Wildlife in Panshanger Park near Hertford was organised by the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, in partnership with Hertfordshire Natural History Society, and hosted by site owners Tarmac.
The family-friendly Festival, which was free, featured guided walks and expert talks as well as a whole host of conservation activities.
