Highlights in the Darkness

Our next natural history talk:  Bitterns and other nocturnal birds

The science of conservation, knowing what birds need and how they use their habitat is essential for good conservation and comes from detailed observation in the field, recording and analysis.  Gillian Gilbert has been working for RSPB in its conservation science department for many years, involved with learning and advising on species management for many species.  This talk concentrates on some of the more nocturnal species.  Bitterns were once a struggling species until detailed science discovered what they needed and changes in management to suit those needs have seen a complete turn around in fortunes for this once rare red data species.  Hopefully Gillian will shed some light on what role science has played in its comeback.

Join us for this interesting presentation on Tuesday 4th April, 7.30pm at the Natural History Centre, Port Charlotte.

Everyone is welcome. Admission £3.50, INHT members £1 inc. Tea & Cake and a chance to chat.
