Picture of James Gloyn

Our speaker this month, James Gloyn, was not only a very entertaining speaker but a very good singer as well. He accompanied his talk with beautiful photographs that illustrated his point and twice burst into song! He told us about the visiting birds in his Newchurch garden i.e. What attracts them, feather change, their loyalty to one another and illnesses. Did you know that there has been a 64% decrease of Green Finches in the last ten years and that Gold Finches are on the increase? Did you know that LBJ means large big jobs (birds)?

The Best Bloom was won by Maureen Turner and the speaker themed competition was won by Cheryl Downie.
