All Indoor meetings/Field meetings are suspended until further notice, in view of Covid-19. They will restart when government restrictions are eased, and it is safe to do so.

Antipodes – at the edge of the abyss – Jeff Clarke

Birds of New Zealand.

New Zealand is the seabird capital of the world, blessed with many species of albatross, petrels and shearwaters, not to mention the penguins and numerous members of the cormorant clan.  The same seas are also rich in cetaceans.

On top of this, New Zealand is home to a number of threatened endemic land birds.

This talk illustrates a large proportion of the region’s iconic wildlife, and explores the threats they face, and the conservation efforts required to save them.

This illustrated presentation will take place at St Bridget’s Church Centre, St Bridget’s Lane, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 3JT. This is not a ticket event – please just come along.

The above photograph, of a Southern Royal Albatross seen off Stewart Island, was taken by Jeff.
