Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust North Notts Local Group talks

by | 7 November 2019 | Retford, Sherwood, Wildlife, Worksop

The November meeting of the North Notts Local Group of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust will feature a talk by Dr David Parkin entitled ‘Britain’s Seabirds: Threats and Challenges’. This talk was advertised in March but, unfortunately, had to be cancelled. It will focus on the north-east Atlantic Ocean which is home to millions of seabirds; Britain and Ireland play host to some truly magnificent colonies. David will describe methods of monitoring these colonies and show how changes in the numbers can sometimes be related to problems in the oceans themselves.

David is an accomplished speaker and an enthusiastic ornithologist and natural historian. He helped found the Department of Genetics at Nottingham University where he became Professor of Avian Genetics and specialised in evolutionary genetics.

This meeting will be held in the Rural Learning Centre at the Idle Valley, North Road (A638), Retford DN22 8RQ on Thursday 14th November. The meeting starts at 7.30pm. Admission is £2.50 and includes refreshments. All are welcome, including non-members. For more information call Jan on 01777 709974 or 07969 180067 or email janwilliamson133@gmail.com.
