These documents are from the early days in the group’s history and start to show the many changes that have occurred. The whole Lower Aire Valley’s structure is constantly changing, and with it, the animals that adapt to its changes and of course ourmembers that strive to record them all in detail.
I hope that this historical feature is just the beginning of a fascinating insight into what happens ‘behind the scenes’ at Swillington Ings. Any other interesting historical data of a similar nature would be welcome. Please use the website “Contacts” facility to get in touch with an appropriate member . (PRG)
