  1. Dear Birders, I have recently become the Programme Secretary for Harrogate & District Naturalists’ Society, and am trying to put together a programme of lectures for their winter meetings, which take place on Wednesday evenings, once a fortnight, in the St Roberts centre, Harrogate. The talks last about 1 hour, illustrated with slides or video, and are often given by bird enthusiasts, perhaps showing photos of a holiday they have been on, or just local pictures. I’m wondering if any of your members would be interested in offering a talk? One topic I thought would be particularly interesting is the history of the development of St Aidans, the management and the bird variety to be found there now.
    The speaker can ask for a modest fee and expenses. I am looking at the period October 2016-April 2017 so plenty of time to plan your talk!
    Failing this, I would be very grateful for any other suggestions for possible speakers… I have not lived in the area for very long and don’t have a lot of contacts!
    Yours in anticipation,
    Ruth Upsall

  2. Noticed your request. Would your members be interested in a talk about BAWC’s campaign against Wildlife Crime. Please email me at phil@birdersagainst for more details.
