A talk by: Anthony McGeehan                                                            


WHEN: At 8 pm Thursday 4th December 2014

* Garden Birds are busy

    *Plumage has to be changed and breeding partners found.

   * Sufficient food is required on a daily basis - and more food again to rear a family.  

   * They could be zapped at any moment by their nemesis, the Sparrow hawk

   * They live lives on a hair trigger.

   * Do birds really need to drink

   * More than just Cuckoos deliberately lay eggs in the nest of others in order to dodge parental  responsibilities. 

     Copies of  Anthony’s various books on Birds will also be on sale on the night

Followed by Tea and  mince pies
