Our first talk is on Tuesday 12th September at 7.45pm. It promises to be a treat.

For the last six years, two enthusiastic young naturalists Ric Else and Hazel Watson have been searching Rathlin Island for everything living.

They have recorded over 1400 species of flora and fauna including some firsts for Ireland as well as rediscovering a number of species not seen for several decades.

They are coming to speak to us about this amazing place. The title of their talk is “Rathlin’s Special Species:- Seabirds to ladybirds and butterflies to butterworts”

We meet as usual in Desertcreat Women’s Institute Hall, Desertcreat Road, Dungannon Road, Cookstown BT80 8UJ.  

All members and visitors are very welcome. See our home page for directions.
