Talks, walks and lectures
I have been giving public talks on wildlife since the age of eleven, when I spoke to a local W.I. about badgers. Since then I have spoken to many hundreds of groups on a variety of natural history subjects. My talks can be geared to fit any audience, venue and timespan. I have Powerpoint equipment (showing many of my own photographs) and can bring along my captive-bred owls on request. I also lead wildlife walks and owl prowls.
