Due to health reasons, Derek has sadly decided to discontinue his excellent Nature Notes. He is, however, more than happy to try and identify any photographs that FOGW members send in.


Derek's fascinating Notes and amazing photographs will remain on the website for all to enjoy.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank Derek for for all the fantastic work he has done over the years for FOGW. This includes, of course, the excellent Nature Notes superbly illustrated with amazing photographs, his attempts to have Gillfield designated an SSSI site and the enlightening presentations given to the group on a number of occasions. 


We wish Derek all the best fro the future.
