During the worst of the pandemic, I decided to begin Zoom talks so that I could still share my experiences and photography with various groups and give them some wildlife related topics to help them through difficult times. However I am now back giving talks in person to groups within 45 minutes drive of my Ringwood home. The change in Government restrictions etc. has enabled me to resume these local lectures which I am pleased to say, have proved very popular. Also, with live talks I could judge the audience reaction to some of the things I was saying (including some of my bad jokes - groan!) so I could then adjust my commentary to suit the individual audience.
Consequently I have decided to give up my Zoom illustrated talks. Thank you to the groups who booked me for these in the past, I hope you enjoyed them.
Also, a note to local organisations.
I have now added a new lecture to my repertoire 'New Beginnings; From Gravel to Grebes' which deals with the transformation of land from agricultural use to a super nature reserve that is the Blashford Lakes. A much visited Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Nature Reserve and education center a couple of miles north of Ringwood in Hampshire, this location hosts an excellent and wide range of wildlife as my talk shows. Below are a few images that appear in the talk:-
