Our next ZOOM meeting will take place on Wednesday, 14th July at 8pm:
with our guest speaker, Andre Farrar, will be telling us about "Saving Special Places", stopping the loss of nature in our reserves and protected areas and the people involved. Andre is based at the Lodge where he has led the media team and developed campaigns for the RSPB since 2000. He is keenly interested in hen harriers and birds of prey.

EXTRA ZOOM meeting: Those who attended the AGM in April will recall that Peter Holden MBE was telling us about how people have been influenced by birds in art, music and other images. However due to lack of time we did not cover the 20th century to date. So Peter has kindly agreed to return and complete Part 2 of his talk "Inspired By Birds" on Wednesday 11th August at 8pm, including how the RSPB moved on to the cinema screen. So if you can't get away this summer please add this to your diary!
