Title: Cookham's Wild About Gardens Awards
Post by: Cookham Webmaster on April 06, 2018, 12:56:06 PM
With Easter behind us and Spring in the air at last, it's time to get busy making our gardens fit for wildlife.  First step is to come to WildCookham's meeting next Thursday, 12th April, to hear about Cookham's Wild About Gardens Awards launched this month, and to get useful ideas and tips from Hilary Phillips of Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust.  The Awards will be presented later this year to local garden owners based on the number of wildlife-friendly features in your garden - and you have between now and the end of June to submit the very simple self-certification form.

You can also get full details about the Awards at the meeting and join up if you wish.
Already there's been a lot of interest in the Awards and the organisers hope that we are on the way to making Cookham a Community that's Proud of its Wildlife!

All details of the meeting are on the WildCookham Meetup site (https://www.meetup.com/WildCookham) or email lpeperell@f2s.com to confirm you plan to attend.

Boy oh boy, it makes me feel very happy to see this competition taking place. Although I myself will not be taking part, I want everyone with a camera to take part, not only for the competition, but all year round. So having said that, "Good Luck.", and get snapping! Remember you can always make a still shot from a video.

Here is a sample of nature, though a bumble bee may be easier to take.

There is sound.
