Nottinghamshire Birdwatchers Annual General Meeting - Thursday 21st March 2019
To be held at the University of Nottingham Sports and Social Club.
After the official business of the AGM there will be a buffet giving an opportunity to mingle with fellow members and a bar will be available to purchase drinks. Following the buffet there will be a talk by our guest speaker. We are very lucky to welcome back Dr Andy Lowe whose talk will be on the Birds of Sherwood. Andy has huge knowledge and experience in this area through his work with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and Birklands Ringing Group. Last year Andy received an Honorary Doctorate from Nottingham University for his invaluable contribution to the quality of research and the student experience in the School of Life Sciences at the University and his talks are always full of interesting facts and the odd bit of humour.
