TALK: The Thames as a Wildlife Corridor
February 11, 2016 @ 6:45 pm - 8:30 pm£4 – £5
‘From Hills to High Water: The Thames as a Widlife Corridor’
Peer into its murky depths and you’ll discover that the River Thames is teaming with abundant and fascinating wildlife. It was the natural history of the Thames which drew wildlife guide and environmental teacher Brenna Boyle from the Derbyshire peaks and the Scottish Highlands to the heart of the city. Join Brenna for an evening’s talk and explore how the Thames attracts, supports and spreads wildlife along its diverse and changeable banks. Discover the fish which lives as long as a person and grows to a metre in length, the birds who have been nicknamed “sea-swallows” and migrate thousands of miles to breed on the Thames, and the mammal who enjoys nothing better than “banana-ing” in the estuary.
Talk for the RSPB Central London Local Group, non members welcome. No need to book.
