Zoom meeting: Copped Hall update and my garden in Lockdown by Peter Warne

Location: Wherever you can connect to Zoom! Enjoy in your own home.

Peter Warne is a biologist and photographer who lives close to Epping Forest. His photographic and wildlife-watching skills have won him success in the British Wildlife Photography Awards.

He returns to our group to describe his discoveries at Copped Hall, then in his own Lockdown garden and when released, back into Copped Hall and surrounding area.
Not only will there be some birds but also mammals, trees, invertebrates and fungi.

There will be a quick introduction at the start plus around a 15 minute break between the talks for a tea break.
Unfortunately you will have to make your own tea, unlike at a physical meeting!

Please email us at for details on how to join us (including guides on how to join and use Zoom).

Time: 7.30 pm for 8 pm start (to allow time to join and maybe 'chat')

Price: Donations would be much appreciated!
