Interview with Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and Theme Tune Challenge!

Hi everyone,

On the show today, we heard from Tim Hill from Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust. Tim reminded us that the getting out and about in the countryside during Autumn can be most enjoyable and rewarding. It's a free activity, good exercise and during this time of year you might even see a bird of prey! This is the time of year when birds start migrating and it's possible to see hawks, buzzards, red kites, and even kestrels. Warm sunny autumn days are the best time to look, particularly around west St Albans in the Potters Crouch / Bedmond areas.

Also at this time of year, you should still be able to spot dragon flies and butterflies. Tim also reminded us that hedgerows are particularly important during this time of year as they house bats as well as produce fruits and berries. A great place to spot bats is by the lake in Verulam Park.

If you'd like to see some countryside during the autumn months then Herts and Middlesex Wildilfe Trust manges 43 nature reserves which are well worth a visit. They also run guided walks, training courses and workshops. For more information visit www.wildlifetrust.org.uk/herts/. They're also looking for volunteers - if you'd like to work with the organisation as a volunteer, then call 01727 858901.

Also on the show we had Phil Richards play our Theme Tune Challenge - Phil is a Radio Verulam presenter and presents Verulam AM which runs Monday to Friday, 8am - 12pm. Here's a new leaderboard showing Phil's score along with the scores from other Radio Verulam people:
