Indoor Meeting The Danube Delta (and AGM) – Andy Harding

1 Nov 2018 - 19:30 to 22:00

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

A talk on the birds of the Danube Delta by our own Buckinghamshire County Recorder, tour leader and well travelled birder.

The talk is based on 6 boat trips, travelling round the many channels of the Romanian sector of the Danube Delta.  The Delta is one of the wonders of the world as far as birds are concerned.  In spring, trees, bushes and reeds which flank each waterway are alive with the song of many small birds, while vast colonies of larger Herons, Egrets and Pelicans raise their young.  How many is more evident in autumn, when some flocks are simply breathtaking.  While mainly centred on birds, some of the other creatures appear and a couple of the most interesting features of the Delta itself get a look-in.

 

Purple Heron

 

Juvenile Whiskered Tern

Please note that the club AGM starts at 7:30pm with doors open from 7:15pm.  The talk will then start at 7:45pm.
