The Reading Naturalist

We publish an annual report and bulletin called “The Reading Naturalist”. It has many sections covering all our activities during the year: indoor meetings, field excursions, mid-week walks, recorder’s reports, articles and weather summary. It has been published each year since 1949.

Back copies of recent issues can be bought by contacting the secretary, but PDF versions of all issues can be downloaded free by clicking on the links below:

All issues have searchable text so should be indexed by sites like Google. The bracketed date is the date of publication and each issue relates to the previous year.
