From the Clifftop

There really hasn't been a great deal to report of late .

The moth trap has mostly just produced the common autumn brown moths, commonest being Square Spot Rustic, the first Lunar Underwings turned up three days ago, but it's just too cold at night. The Hastings Autumn Migration Watch has been underway since early August, but that too has been slow here  with just one decent  movement,  of 1300 House Martins a few days ago, Remarkably few Meadow Pipits have come through so far. Things can only get better !

Alfred Russell Wallace:

The Man who Lived in Darwin’s Shadow

19th October 2019 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Part of the Friends Winter Talk series: Ray Hale is fascinated by the men who have made natural history what it is today and to whom we owe our understanding of the natural world. Alfred Russell Wallace was a humble, now almost forgotten naturalist who arrived at the theory of evolution at the same time as Charles Darwin. Who knows what might have been had Alfred published his own work first? Ray Hale completes the story.
