2.5 Round the Countryside
Southward Bound! (Autumn
Migrants)
C. C. GADDUM
At this time of the year there is a distinct change in the distribution of bird life in the British Isles. Birds like the swift, swallow, and martin, leave for warmer countries, while their place is taken by such birds as the fieldfare, redwing, and wood-cock, which come to this country from the North. Mr. Gaddum will explain how birds are ringed, and how information about their movements can be obtained.
Teachers will find it useful to have either specimens or drawings of a fieldfare and redwing to show their classes.

' Mafeking '
Lord Baden-Powell, K.C.B., O.M.
Roberts, French, George White , Methuen-all were heroes of the Boer War, but undoubtedly the one to catch popular imagination was that gallant, indomitable, and. ingenious soldier then known as Colonel Baden-Powell. Mafeking was besieged by the Boers on October 12, 1899, and under his leadership held out against overwhelming numbers in spite of dwindling rations and water until its relief on May 17, 1900. News of the relief of Mafeking was received in England with the wildest enthusiasm. There was to. be nothing like Mafeking Night until Armistice Night after the Great War.
It is a unique opportunity for listeners to hear Lord Baden-Powell speak tonight of the Siege of Mafeking in ' I Was There '.
