Yes, thanks to the COVID precautions in place in the Victoria Hall we can invite you to another in our series of Indoor Talks - this time by David Waters, Director of the Great Bustard Group (GBG) on Salisbury Plain.
Most people haven't got closer than the stuffed one in the entrance to the Salisbury Museum, but Great Bustards are truly magnificent birds, as those of us who joined the Field Trip in August last year will know.
They became extinct in Great Britain when the last one was shot nearly two hundred years ago. Over the last twenty years or more the GBG has created a self-sustaining population on Salisbury Plain of around 100 birds, the only successful reintroduction anywhere - and David is just the man to tell us about it.
You need to register for this event by contacting Dick Budden via email@example.com. Please go to the Talks page for essential information.
The new page banner pic is of course Abby Eaton's of the Hobby - seems appropriate for what's supposed to be fast news!
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
