UK BIRDING - WEST COAST TO EAST COAST!
John Gordon, Professional Photographer

From the wide-open spaces of the Welsh Black Mountains, to the famous Slimbridge Wildlife & Wetland Centre on the Severn Estuary, we’ll visit some of the UK's most varied birding locations. The historical Forest of Dean offers glimpses of forest birds and wild boar, while for the birding traveler landing at Heathrow, John includes locations close to the airport for even more avian delights. John takes us to Northumberland's Farne Islands in the North Sea off England's northeast coast, and closes the presentation with a look at birding in Lincolnshire, including RSPB sites Frampton and Gibraltar Point on England's east coast.

THE CHAT IS BACK!
Christine Bishop, Research Scientist, Environment & Climate Change Canada

Come join Christine as she tells us about the Western Yellow-breasted Chat. Its population in BC was listed in 2000 under the Canadian Species At Risk Act. Its populations are already drastically restricted due to the loss of over 85% of its key nesting habitat - wild rose thickets, in the Okanagan and Similkameen valley systems. She will also give us an update on the rattlesnake population.
