THE RIVER by Paul Hobson

Paul Hobson is our speaker on November 12th.  Paul crossed the Pennines from Manchester to Sheffield University in the late 70’s to study Environmental Science and made a career in lecturing before becoming a full time wildlife photographer.  He has written several booksincluding the very popular ‘Wild Derbyshire’ which shows a Dipper on the front cover, a bird which will certainly feature in his talk. ‘The River’ is a wildlife photo-journey down a river from its birth in the moorlands until it meets its maker, the sea, in the estuary. Along the way Paul explores a variety of British wildlife that lives in, on and around the river. Our photo shows a beautiful male Pochard but some less desirable animals also feature such as the highly invasive Signal Crayfish.
