Talk on ex­otic birds by trav­eller

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS - Stephen Hous­ton

RSPB Cen­tral Ayr­shire Lo­cal Group is launch­ing the win­ter sea­son of talks and out­door meet­ings on Septem­ber 18.

Once more a var­ied and in­ter­est­ing se­ries of il­lus­trated talks will in­form and en­ter­tain mem­bers and vis­i­tors alike.

Speak­ers will trans­port the au­di­ence to ex­otic places but will also en­gage with birds and wildlife in this coun­try and deal with some is­sues of con­cern.

Out­door leader Jim Thom­son will again guide the joint RSPB/ SOC field trips.

He has cho­sen a few favourite haunts but he has also cho­sen some new des­ti­na­tions.

Jim’s knowl­edge of birds and the nat­u­ral world in gen­eral will again sur­prise his au­di­ence.

Tony Scott is or­gan­is­ing a week­end trip to RSPB Leighton Moss and WWT Martin Mere in Novem­ber.

Both places have been vis­ited by the bird­ers be­fore and are very worth­while des­ti­na­tions at this time of year.

More in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at the in­door meet­ing.

Liz Ley­den will be the first speaker; her sub­ject is ‘ Bird­ing in India and Sri Lanka’. Liz, of course, is well known to the group. She has trav­elled widely and has al­ways re­turned with a wealth of in­ter­est­ing in­for­ma­tion and sto­ries to share, il­lus­trated by her su­perb pho­to­graphs. Liz’s talk is preceded by mem­ber­ship regis­tra­tion.

The talk is on Mon­day, 18 Septem­ber at 7.30pm in Hall B of the New­ton- Wal­lace­town Church, 60 Main Street. Park­ing is avail­able on Main Street or Gar­den Street.

As al­ways vis­i­tors are warmly wel­comed.
