Just a reminder that next Wednesday, 19th November, sees the welcome return of Jim Almond, an excellent speaker who will be presenting his talk entitled ‘The Birds of Shropshire’ to the MWT Bird Group.
Jim is a popular and entertaining speaker, with a lifelong passion for both nature and photography, so birding has enabled him to combine the two hobbies to good effect! His motto 'never birding without my camera' enables him to capture unforgettable moments in the world of birds, not only on his home patch of Shropshire, but all over the UK and beyond.
He keeps a County list every year and aims to see at least 160 species (with as many as possible photographed!) His talk will include highlights of the past few years, including quite a few rarities and some new records for the County! It will highlight the main birdwatching areas, the best times to go and what might be found there. Shropshire is certainly not one of the best Counties for migrants and rarities but undoubtedly Jim will be providing a few surprises. To date, with a Shropshire life-list of 226 birds, he still manages to add one or two new species every year!
All are welcome to attend the talk, which will be held at Welshpool Methodist Hall on Wednesday 19th November, at 7.30pm. £2 to include refreshments and a warm welcome.
