WHEN 7.30pm on Mon­day 27 March

WHERE West Charleton Vil­lage Hall, Devon

Lo­cal nat­u­ral­ist John Walters will be re­veal­ing in this talk the amaz­ing va­ri­ety of wildlife found on moor­lands and along coast­lines in Devon through field sketches, pho­to­graphs and video clips. The il­lus­tra­tor was in­ter­viewed dur­ing an episode of BBC One’s The One Show, which fea­tured the ru­fous grasshop­per. He will be shar­ing his knowl­edge of this species and oth­ers dur­ing the evening. “The ru­fous grasshop­per is quite rare lo­cally, and has a beau­ti­ful courtship dis­play,” he says. Kings­bridge Nat­u­ral His­tory So­ci­ety mem­bers can at­tend for free and tick­ets cost £3 for non-mem­bers.
