Notts Wildlife Trust Retford Group

by | 7 February 2018 | Wildlife

‘Birding in Ireland’ is the subject of Notts Wildlife Trust’s Retford Group’s illustrated lecture on Thursday 8th February at 7.30pm. Presenter Gary Hobson, a local birder and wildlife conservation enthusiast, will be giving an account of his 2015 holiday to County Galway on Ireland’s west coast.

Not only will he include his photos of common birds found there, but also a selection of amazing scenic images, plenty of local culture and tradition. He will also include a review of the rare and scarce birds from all around the world that this part of Ireland, which he calls a “magical place”, has thrown up during the past decade.

This lecture takes place at the Idle Valley Rural Learning Centre, Great North Road, Retford DN22 6SG. Everyone is welcome. The fee is £2.50, which includes light refreshments, and there will be a raffle in aid of group funds, which are put towards local wildlife conservation projects.
