Friday Evening RSPB/BB Lecture
We are also delighted to announce that Stephen Menzie will be giving the Friday Evening RSPB/BB Lecture, with his talk, ‘A beginner’s guide to moult’.
Originally from Liverpool, Stephen now lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. He is the Editor of British Birds, a member of BBRC and, between March 2020 and March 2023, was manager of Falsterbo Bird Observatory. He is also an ambassador for ZEISS and an occasional tour leader for WINGS. A birder since he was a youngster, Stephen has long held an interest in moult and ageing. Lucky enough to ring thousands of birds a year at Falsterbo, Stephen has been fascinated by how features used for ageing birds in the hand can be translated to field observations, and how this can be presented to birders who have no experience of ringing. At the very core of this is understanding moult and moult patterns, and this is what Stephen will be talking about in his Friday-evening presentation.
You’ll need a weekend ticket or a Saturday ticket to attend this lecture.
Tickets go on sale at 12pm on Friday 21st April via the Spurn Shop - https://shop.spurnbirdobservatory.co.uk/shop/category/migfest
