David’s talk is on the subject of his recently published book called ‘A Wander to Wonder’.
The book is a detailed report in words and photographs of this circular walk of just over four miles in Borrowdale; a walk David has enjoyed hundreds of times over ten years or more. It is a very varied route encompassing moorland, pastures, a wonderful bog, a board-walk over marshland, a woodland stream and lakeside.  There are wonderful views rewarding very little effort and there is a rich diversity of flora and fauna en route around this walk which provides interest throughout the seasons. Most of all it is a walk which has inspired me to take a greater interest in the natural history around me, from lichens and fungi, to Dunnock and Deer!
