Thorne Times offers readers chance to win Limited Edition Prints

Readers local to Thorne & Hatfield Moors may well receive the Thorne Times, a recent iniative which sees local stories contributed by local people.  The paper is the project of Karren Wake who funds the ‘freesheet’ and its delivery to in excess of 16,000 properties in the area through advertising.  Each edition sees 48 pages packed with local news, events and items of interest to the local communities of Moorends, Thorne, Fishlake, Hatfield, Stainforth, Dunscroft & Dunsville.

It has just distributed its fourth edition, the January copy in which the regular column “Ramblings and nature notes of a bog-trotter” offers readers the opportunity to win a set of Limited Edition Prints, individually signed by the artist, the late Dr Peter Skidmore?  Other runner up prizes include copies of An Inventory of the Invertebrates of Thorne & Hatfield Moors and other Thorne & Hatfield Moors Conservation Forum publications.  All correct entries will receive a copy of the Forum’s Hatfield Moors map (to be collected from the Thorne Times office).

There are six easy questions, the answers to which can be found in the first three editions of the Thorne Times.

  1. Who described the late Wm Bunting as “Naturalist, Pamphleteer, Archivist, Rebel, Bad-tempered old-sod and Inspiration”?
  2. In 1999 Evarca arcuata was discovered on Hatfield Moors, what is it?
  3. What year was the Thorne Moors beetle first discovered in the UK?

  5. What year did English Nature try to remove the protective status of large parts of Thorne & Hatfield Moors?
  6. Which winter thrushes breed in Scandanavia?

So, many blog readers will know the answers to at least five of the above, question 4 might be the tricky one?
