'A Year in the Life of Bickershaw Country Park' by Dr. Paul Richardson

Leigh Ornithological Society Conservation Officer Dr. Paul Richardson takes us through the four seasons at Bickershaw Country Park in the Wigan area and illustrates its biodiversity with a wonderful range of photographs from what is a reclaimed industrial mining site. This is one of the so-called 'Brownfield Sites' and it shows how they are not 'dead' areas devoid of interest but vibrant living homes to an abundance of wildlife and plants.


This presentation was originally given in person at a Friday night L.O.S. indoor meeting in the Derby Room at Leigh Library.

'Pennington Flash Memories' by Dave Wilson

Here is Dave Wilson's original cine film entitled 'Pennington Flash Memories' which he used to give a talk about the importance of Pennington Flash as a home and nesting place for resident birds and feeding station for migrants as well as a home for wild flowers. There is currently no sound although I'm hoping be able to add some form of commentary later.
