Autumn is here and a busy schedule of talks about hedgehogs and Linescapes seems to have leapt into my diary … if there are no details linked to the date, drop me an email because I will (hopefully) have more information closer to the time.

3rd October – Shrivenham Gardening Club

4th October – Kidlington Gardening Society

5th October – Oxford RSPB, Sandhills

19th October – WI Over Norton (7.30pm)

26th October – Norfolk Wildlife Trust AGM

29th October – Braziers Park panel discussion on animal ethics (11.30am)

1st & 3rd November I am lecturing at Brookes University, will see if public are allowed to join.

4th November – Stroud Literary Festival – two events, Hedgehogs at 12.30pm, Linescapes at 2.30pm

15th November – Kent Wildlife Trust – training during the day and a talk in the evening.

18th November – Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust AGM – flattered to have it described as a ‘celebrity lecture’!

19th November – Kendal Mountain Festival – quite a daunting bit of travel this is going to be to get there for 2.30pm … my friends in Nottingham have promised to not feed me whisky the night before.

21st November – St Neots U3A – that is at 2pm, and then I intend to take a rest … until

2nd December – Oxford Green Fair – one of my favourite events of the year where I get to talk to people about hedgehogs all day long (and persuade them to buy my books for Christmas presents!)
