Our May 18 issue has some amazing features in it.
The cover feature is a glorious walk with Willie Shand near the Fife coast by Kinghorn. Flowers and wildlife abound, and he’s got a rare day for the walk. Just like the lovely weather we’re having now!
Polly Pullar is taking a look at the subject of netting. You might have seen it pop up in the news recently — they’re even discussing it in government. Some developers have been netting off hedges and trees to prevent birds nesting before they develop an area, but nature advocates are concerned about the impact this is having on our already fragile bird populations.
In this gorgeous wee feature, we’re looking at an organisation that records members of the R.A.F. reading bedtime stories, so their children can listen to them while they’re away serving. It’s a touching read.
