Thursday 29th November - 7 pm - Abdon Village Hall
Well-known local ornithologist Leo Smith will be giving a talk on Shropshire Curlews, identifying the status of these iconic birds and detailing the work being carried out to conserve them in the county. He will also show how the overall results of surveys by the Abdon Wildlife Group on these and other birds fit into the bigger picture.
South Shropshire RSPB members are warmly invited to the talk.

Would you be willing to spend and hour or so enthusing and inspiring the younger generation?
We have been asked by Emma Summers from a local Children's Wildlife Watch group, set up through the Shropshire Wildlife Trust, if anyone would be prepared to visit their group for an hour on a Sunday to talk about the wild birds of Shropshire, and possibly organise a birdwatching session with the children. The group meets in Ludlow at the Dinham Bridge site.
If you would like to help this worthwhile cause please contact Emma at email@example.com. Thanks!
