Kicking off our new season of talks in September was an introduction to the RSPB Otmoor nature reserve, located just outside Oxford.  Adrian Tysoe, one of the volunteer wardens took us through a series of slides on the history and landscapes of this relatively local and perhaps, little known reserve.  Looking more like the Fens with big skies and lots of water, it was a treat.

At our last meeting on Oct 17th, Christine Cluley gave us a very interesting talk on the history of Compton Verney house and the influence of Capability Brown, including pictures of before and after the recent improvements which transformed it into the splendid venue that we can enjoy today. We welcomed visitors from Radway Club and were pleased to see that the hall was full to capacity. The competition photographs were on display and prizes and certificates handed out. Many thanks to Grenville for acting as judge. Well done all the members who found a Flower of the Month for our regular competition-there were 11 entries.
