Wildlife curtain and wings

Natural World. Iron Curtain, Ribbon of Life is on BBC2 at 8.00pm tomorrow. This is all about the wildlife in what is the world’s biggest conservation area stretching some 8,000 miles across Europe, protecting everything from bears in Finland to rare eagles in Bulgaria.

I’ve just started reading Dance with Wings by Amelia Carr. Not surprisingly it was the title, the fact that the author is interested in aviation and has a private pilots licence,Ā  and that the book is dedicated to the brave men and women of the Air Transport Auxiliary that caught my eye and prompted me to buy it. I’ll let you know what I thought of this novel when I’ve read it!

I’ve not done much looking skywards lately as RAF Northolt has been closed to visitors for much of the time during recent weeks. However one notable aircraft that I did see landing there last week was this Czech Air Force Antonov An-26B.

If you’re planning on going for a walk in the countryside this weekend then it’ll be well worth having a look at the excellent When to Watch Wildlife – March Wildlife Highlights before setting out.

Have a good weekend!

    8,000 miles across Europe! Who decided on the area and when was it officially conserved?

    Well, Flighty, there was one more Nat Gal post (in which I mentioned you), but coming up soon the Museum of American History followed immediately by the Museum of Natural History. May be a little more your cup of tea, in spite of the absence of planes. šŸ™‚
