PEREGRINES

24th March at 7.30pm, Keith Betton 

Keith Betton, Hampshire Ornithological Society Chairman is a keen world birder having seen over 8500 species in nearly 110 countries. He has a particular passion for Africa, having been Chairman of the African Bird Club for the last seven years. In the UK he is heavily involved in bird monitoring in Hampshire, where he is County Recorder. He has been a Council Member of both the RSPB and BTO, and is currently Vice President of the latter.

Peregrines were once very rare in England but now that they have full protection they are coming back in good numbers - and nesting alongside us in our cities. Keith Betton has been studying them in Hampshire for ten years and shares with us the story of their return and why the fastest flying bird deserves our attention.
