Michael Clark, giving the 2017 Gerald Salisbury Memorial Lecture, provided a fascinating overview of his commitment – spread across half a century – to badger conservation and preserving traditional varieties of apple.
Speaking to around 80 members of the HNHS and Welwyn Natural History Society on 22 November, he looked back to a time when badgers lacked legal protection and the authorities showed little interest in preventing illegal trapping and gassing.
More than 75 HNHS members and their friends attended the Society's Autumn Meeting and AGM on Saturday 4 November at the Affinity Water offices in Hatfield.
One theme to emerge from a series of well-received presentations was the value – in both conservation and money-saving terms – of grazing animals used to restore and maintain sensitive habitats in nature reserves.
We are sad to report the death of former HNHS Secretary John Scivyer, who died peacefully at home on 26 September aged 88, 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.
