His­tory lec­ture

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

They don’t hang around in the Kil­macangue His­tory So­ci­ety we can re­veal. No sooner has a very suc­cess­ful 2014 se­ries fin­ished when the Spring se­ries is planned.

First up on Jan­uary 13 is ‘Wick­low Birds – part of our nat­u­ral her­itage’ and it will be pre­sented by Eric Dempsey.

In this vis­ually stun­ning pre­sen­ta­tion, Eric will fo­cus on birds which can be found in County Wick­low, both na­tive and mi­gra­tory. He will de­scribe their dif­fer­ent habi­tats, their breed­ing sea­sons and mi­grat­ing move­ments, and their strug­gle to sur­vive our harsh win­ters. He will also tell us of some breeds which have be­come ei­ther less or more common in Wick­low over the past num­ber of years, and of­fer some rea­sons for th­ese chang­ing pat­terns.

Eric Dempsey is a full-time writer, broad­caster, speaker and wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher, and a long-time mem­ber of the RTE Mooney Goes Wild team. He is the au­thor of sev­eral books on Ir­ish birdlife, in­clud­ing ‘The Com­plete Field Guide to Ire­land’s Birds’, and some of th­ese books will be avail­able for pur­chase on the night.

This meet­ing prom­ises to be an up­lift­ing start to a fur­ther sea­son of great pre­sen­ta­tions to the so­ci­ety and all are wel­come to come along and join them. It’s on in the Glen­view Ho­tel in the Glen of the Downs at 8.30 p.m. on Tues­day, Jan­uary 13. En­try is just €3 (€2 for mem­bers) and if you want more de­tails of the so­ci­eties ac­tiv­i­ties, please visit their Web­site @ kil­macanogue­his­to­ryso­ci­ety.com
