Duncan is part of the NatHistCam team, a CNHS project to survey the wildlife of Cambridge. On Thursday 3rd October, the Society's Autumn talks season kicks off with Mark Hill speaking on Cambridge's Natural History: what do we know after three years of NatHistCam? Cambridge's habitats - gardens, commons, ponds, river waters and chalklands combine to produce an environment that is exceptionally rich in wildlife. Mark Hill will outline what the NatHistCam team has found over the past three years. See more at www.nathistcam.org.uk
