Duke Street Church, Richmond, TW9 1DH
Have you ever wondered what prompts people to take up field-glasses and rise at dawn? Birders and non-birders will enjoy this energising and inspirational talk by David Lindo (a.k.a. The Urban Birder) about his adventures in urban settings and the fascinating – and sometimes surprising – wildlife he discovered there. You will be amazed, intrigued, and laugh out loud at David’s incredible tales. Expect to leave feeling inspired to grab a pair of binoculars, rush to the nearest bit of open sky and “look up”! Not to be missed. Early bird tickets available now.
David Lindo is The Urban Birder – broadcaster, writer, speaker and tour leader. His mission is to engage city folk around the world with the plentiful urban nature that surrounds them. He is a regular television and radio presenter and has been featured on the BBC’s The One Show, Radio 4’s Open Country, ITV and Channel 4. David is currently a judge on the Observer’s Ethical Awards and was recently named as the 7th most influential person in wildlife by BBC Wildlife Magazine.
This is a fundraising event on behalf of the Environment Trust, a small charity based in East Twickenham, and will enable us to continue our nature conservation work in Hounslow, Richmond and Kingston.
David’s books (The Urban Birder, Tales from Concrete Jungles: Urban Birding Around the World, The Urban Birder’s City Guide) will be on sale, so pick up a copy and get it signed!
