Inspiration

‘Baseline’ creep is a term that describes what we know to be the norm that is slowly changing. A good example is that of the nightingale; our grandparents would have heard its call frequently but now it is very rare. Now it is the song thrush that is becoming rare, and in our children’s lifetime it may be the common blackbird.

 

I invite you to come and attend this Global Earth Exchange to bear witness to this baseline creep, as it is happening in our own backyard. What birds do we hear? What is missing? What have we noticed that is gone, and what do we still have that we need to retain?

Please meet at the far end of Raby Avenue in Barnard Castle at 10am. We will walk some way into the woods on paths, which may be slippery and uneven, but are suitable for most. If you have any access concerns please do get in touch on +44 (0)7720390065 to talk about your requirements. The Exchange should last around an hour, but spending as much time in the woods as you like is welcome.
