At the GENERAL MEETING there will be a talk entitled “Birds of Sea and Shore” by David Boag

He lectures regularly throughout the country to a wide variety of natural history, photographic and general interest audiences. On numerous occasions he has spoken at major conferences for organisations such as the National Trust, the RSPB, British Trust for Ornithology and the Royal Photographic Society.
Birds of Sea and Shore
Surrounded by the North Atlantic and the North Sea it is hardly surprising that we are blessed with a wealth of birds that take advantage of the sea and shore. The productivity of the ocean provides almost everything that many birds require – indeed some birds would never return to land if it not not for the fact that they cannot lay their egg on the sea.
In this interesting talk we take a look at a exciting spectrum of birds to include a selection of – Waders, Gulls, Geese, Ducks, Skuas, Auks, Terns, etc. We will enjoy seeing a wealth of photographs to illustrate his thoughts.
