Robin Nelson “Bird Song and Bird calls”

Indoor Events
Date: 11 December 2018 19:30

Venue: St Andrew's Church, Long Street, Devizes SN10 1NJ.

Tuesday 11th December 2018 at 7.30 pm: Robin Nelson “Bird Song and Bird calls” and the Annual Photographic Competition at St Andrew's Church, Long Street, Devizes SN10 1NJ.

Robin, a WOS member, is a musician with a passion for birds and bird watching. Using images and sounds, he will take us on an entertaining and instructive journey through many of the commoner species, including some, like the nightingale, quail and grasshopper warbler that are more likely to be seen than heard. There will be references to music, a few anecdotes and some more unusual sounds, such as the call of the female Cuckoo and the wing clapping ritual of the Nightjar.

 It is also the occasion of the WOS photo competition for members of the Society.

Please bring your photos (A4 size or 10 x 8”) along on the evening [preferably 20 minutes prior to start to enable display to be set up].

You can enter up to 3 photos, one for each of the categories: Best Wiltshire Bird; Best UK Bird; Best Other Wildlife/Natural History.

All photos must be taken this year and of wild subjects (no captive animals, birds at sanctuaries, pets, etc). 

A prize will be awarded to the best in each category as chosen by the members present on the evening.  As we all have different opinions, anyone can win, so why not have a go!

Admission £2.00 to include refreshments
