“Around the World in 80 Birds”
After almost two decades of long haul travel with a long lens this talk documents some of the amazing experiences and birds he has encountered. Enigmatic species such as the critically endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Northern Bald Ibis, the little-known Stresemann’s Bushcrow of southern Ethiopia as well as some sparkling gems from Far Eastern & Neo-tropical jungles all feature on a whistle-stop tour around the globe.

The Yorkshire Coast is an incredible place to see a wide variety of wildlife across different habitats. From deep forests and woodlands to the beautiful purple moorland of the North York Moors National Park, along the rugged coastline and through the sweeping hills of the Yorkshire Wolds you will be amazed at what you can see. This talk tells the story behind the reasons for forming our company ‘Yorkshire Coast Nature” and the wildlife that can be found along the Yorkshire Coast.
