Bentley Old Vicarage

This talk was given by James Mercer on 11th January 2016.

James Mercer is the vicar of All Saints Church, Harrow Weald, the church which is adjacent to the Old Vicarage Nature Reserve.

The following photographs were used to illstrate the talk. We have parasol mushrooms from the autumn, a muntjac peeking through the undergrowth and spring flowers, namely anemones, primroses and common spotted orchids.
