Guest speaker: Hugh Warwick

Hugh is a regular contributor to environment and wildlife programmes on radio and televisions, has written for a wide range of newspapers and magazines and is also a photographer with a particular fondness for hedgehogs. He has written four books –most recently Linescapes in which he turns his attention to the landscape –
seeing how the linear features we build – hedges, roads,walls, canals etc. all have an impact on wildlife. Sometimes these lines are connecting, sometimes fragmenting the habitat that is under such pressure already.He argues that we can use the lines for the benefit of both ourselves are the wildlife we share the landscape with if only we start to treat nature seriously.

He lives in Oxford with his wife, film-maker Zoe Broughton – and two small mammals of their own making, Mati and Pip.
