TAW and Exmoor branch of the British Naturalists' Association enjoyed butterflies, rare birds, music and bird song at their annual indoor meeting.
The meeting at Weare Giffard Village Hall was also open to the public and drew a good attendance.
There was a film on Devon butterflies, with local locations such as Torrington Commons and Braunton Burrows featured prominently.
Another film recorded some of the rarer birds which have visited the south west. These included the long billed murrelet - which was first not only for Devon, but the whole of the British Isles - and also the appearances of cattle egrets and a laughing gull.
