An Introduction to the Chough
By Peter Newbold
This talk will give an introduction to this amazing bird and will include identification, basic ecology, myths and legends and a summary of Peter's research along with more recent literature. He will discuss how studies on feeding behaviour and strategy of chough can be used for the management and conservation of this iconic species.

Field trip to Wallingford
Forthcoming Field Trip to Wallingford, Oxon on 7th August 2016
The meet-up time for this walk is 0900hrs in the St George’s Road, long stay car park in Wallingford. This walk is about 3 miles over fairly level terrain through farmland, small patches of woodland and along the River Thames. Hopefully our route will produce a good cross-section of birds typical of the area. All are welcome and I hope to see you there.
