Of Cats and Kites, Calories and Crows: How our Individual Decisions Collectively Affect Urban Birds
By: Prof. Mark Fellows
We are an urban society, with around 90% of us now living in towns and cities. Our societies' relationship with nature is threatened by urbanisation, and our gardens provide a vital link between people and wildlife. In this talk, Prof Mark Fellows will explore his group's very recent research on unexpected consequences of supplementary feeding, nest boxes and parasites, urban red kites, and predation by domestic cats. Each story has unexpected twists, and each tells us something about how we can protect the species that share our personal patches of green.

Field Trip to Wilstone Reservoir, Herts on 24th Sep 2017
The meetup time for this walk is 0930 in the reservoir car park.  The car park can be found by heading east along the A41 from Aylesbury and on a stretch of dual-carriageway taking the slip-road up on to the B489.  Take the B489 for about a mile and you will find the car park on the right just as you come out of a dog-leg in the road.  Wilstone is always good for a range of species.  All are welcome, hope to see you there.
