Bird of the Bush talk at Phoenix School

David Lindo, the Urban Birder, will be giving a free talk on the Birds of the Bush courtesy of the Friends of Wormholt Park this Friday at 1925.

We last saw the Friends in full Edwardian regalia at the fantastic festival they organised, whcih celebrated a centenary for the open space.

I'm told by Cat, one of the organisers of that day and this Friday evening's entertainment:
"David regularly appears on the One Show on BBC1 and contributes to a number of magazines including, BBC Wildlife, Bird Watching and RSPB’s Birds. The parents among you may know that David was involved in our centenary celebrations in September. He ran the nature activity for our schools day, which went down very well with the children. He’s coming back to see us again so that the adults don’t miss out. 
David does much of his bird watching on nearby Wormwood Scrubs and he has an in depth knowledge of the area and his enthusiasm for his subject is inspiring and infectious. David’s new book The Urban Birder will be available to buy on the night".
You can forgive the plug when these people are some of the most active community volunteers I think I'm aware of in W12 and they contribute to making the Bush a much happier place to be - in return all they ask is that you let them know ahead of time whether or not you're coming. Send a quick email to shepherdsbushblog@yahoo.co.uk and I will pass the message on.

You can also see more details at their website here.
