Art Exhibition: “The Uncanny Scenery of a Dream”

We are hugely grateful to Battens Solicitors for sponsoring this exhibition. Battens has a 300-year old history in the south west – it’s Yeovil office was open in the days when Thomas Hardy was finding his inspiration in the Wessex landscapes.

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
