The BNHS publishes a Journal, a newsletter and books, all focusing on Bedfordshire Wildlife...
Bedfordshire Naturalist:

The editions from 1946 to 1998 are available online HERE. The covers of the most recent edition can be seen HERE.
Wild About Beds:
Wild About Beds is the society's newletter, published three or four times per year. The most-recent editions are available online HERE.

The Editor welcomes contributions from everyone. Articles are as varied as our members and cover all aspects of natural history.
