ZSL Debut Poetry Competition Poems

A pool at (Suffolk Wildlife Trust) Redgrave and Lopham Fen

My thanks to Talita Jenman, ZSL Arts and Culture Coordinator, for her post on my ZSL Poetry Competition win on the theme of 'conservation'.

You can read my Villanelle, 'Raft Race', about the Fen Raft Spider here, along with the other prize-winning entries. The competition was judged by members of ZSL Discovery & Learning department, ZSL Resident poet Ahren Warner and Poet and ZSL council member Ruth Padel.

The photos on my post here were taken last August (2014), when we visited Redgrave and Lopham Fen. Sadly we failed to see any Fen Raft Spiders, though we enjoyed the chance to experience their habitat along the Spider Trail.
