Peter Rock will speak about the history of urban breeding and show why these gulls are vilified and what’s been done to rid our towns and cities of this ‘serious menace’. Or to put it another way, what the gulls have done to upset the world and how visibly the world has responded. Yes, he has the pictures! He’ll also speak about what he’s been doing over the years and what he’s found out. No, they’re not thuggish, nor are they vengeful… The truth is quite different from the mis- and disinformation we’ve all heard. Come along and discover who these birds really are!
Gary Prescott, ‘the Biking Birder’, will introduce us to the birds, reserves and people seen and met during the three years spent cycling around the UK and the seven months spent cycling and packrafting in Peru. Come and learn about The Biking Birder years, including becoming the UK, the European and World Green Birding Champion in 2016!
