In Remembrance - Phil Squire
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Phil Squire, a fellow member of the Beeston Wildlife Group Committee. After battling with cancer, he passed away on 19th March. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family.
Phil made a valuable contribution to the work of the Beeston Wildlife Group, especially using his computer expertise. He enjoyed being involved in all our walks, talks and trips, where people warmed to his friendly, calm personality.
He will be greatly missed.
Our main talk programme is currently suspended but we are running a series of virtual talks via the popular Zoom app. Details of these talks are listed below.

THE CITY with Paul Hobson
Monday 19th April 2021, 7.30pm
Ever thought about visiting your local concrete jungle for your next nature trip? Well you should! Cities can be havens for wildlife such as peregrine falcons, pigeons, orchids, otters, kingfishers and even dippers! You will be enlightened by Paul's insight into the wildlife of urban Britain.
This talk will take place via the popular Zoom app and will cost £2 per device. If everybody in your household will be viewing the talk on the same device you only need to pay once.
