Launched on the Moss

'Leighton Moss Ice Age to Present Day' has now been on sale for a week and seems to be going well.

We launched it  at the RSPB visitor centre last Saturday complete with tea and world famous drizzle cake supplied by the great folk in the cafe,  and a generous speech by the reserve's manager Robin Horner. I'm delighted to say that many of the generous folk who shared their knowledge of the Moss -- and their photos -- were there to give the book a shove down the metaphorical slipway. The book is now available at the RSPB shop at Leighton Moss and at several local bookshops including Waterstone's in Kendal and Lancaster.
