Wildlife films by John Butter at the Plough Arts Centre
JOHN Butter, from Chelfham, has been filming wildlife in North Devon for years. Some of the results of this project can be seen at The Plough Arts Centre on Tuesday, when John will show and talk about three of his stunning natural history films, revealing inhabitants of our North Devon countryside that you don't normally see.
Some Like It Hot-ish is a half-hour film about our six native reptiles, examining why they have to seek an external heat source (unlike ourselves) and the many ways that they are endangered.
Wood For Wildlife explains why managed woods are so important for wildlife, from beetles to red deer. Seasons is a visual calendar of the four seasons as reflected in a North Devon garden and wood.
The film night is part of the B10 celebrations, looking back on 10 years of North Devon's Biosphere Reserve
