Some birds are not uncommon in other parts of the country or around our coasts, but may be in Buckinghamshire.  If you want to see just how scarce a particular species is then take a look at the Bucks List.

Indoor Meeting Talk by Mike Wallen

1 Feb 2018 - 19:30 to 22:00

at Wendover Memorial Hall, , Wendover (Lat/Long 51.7662 and -0.739901)

This talk is titled “Bucks Birding Through The Years”  and will be presented by local birder Mike Wallen.

Mike has been a very keen birder for over 30 years and is one of the top birders in the county and an active member of the Bucks Rarities Committee.  He has visited all of the major birding sites in the county at some time or other and has one of the biggest county lists.  Mike’s talk will probably cover a wide range of local topics and will no doubt touch on the success of the Aylesbury and MK Peregrines.

We can safely assume that Mike will mention Peregrines at some point!

Mike’s own comments about the talk :-

“I have been Birding seriously in Bucks for over 30 years, in that time
both species and populations within the county have fluctuated. The
birding scene, whether active birders, members of the club or local
organisations have come and gone too. There have also been dramatic
changes in the way we record our birds and build the county database.
In 30 years I have built up a broad knowledge of the sites within the
county, the well known, and the not so well known and of the species
that visit us at varying times of the year. I am one of the few county
birders who cover farmland regularly – searching for birds, with some
surprising results. I have a bit of an addiction for vis-migging from
Steps Hill and an avid interest in our awesome Peregrine’s ! I
currently edit the Annual Report, and have done so for many years and
am one of the panel members of the County’s rarities committee.
Birding is pretty much my single hobby, if by some chance I do have
any spare time I usually – GO BIRDING !”

 

The venue is as usual at Wendover Memorial Hall in Wharf Road.  Door open at 7:30pm for a 7:45pm start.  Entrance is free for members and £2 for non-members.   As usual refreshments will be available.
