Jewel in the Crown – Mike McKavett

The birds and animals of Northern India..

Mike says:-

“The talk is based on my exploits in the 80’s, a long time ago.  Although my main interest was birds I’d always had an ambition as a child to visit East Africa and India to photograph Tiger.”

This illustrated presentation will take place at St Bridget’s Church Centre, St Bridget’s Lane, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 3JT.

The above photograph, of Western Siberian Cranes seen wintering in Bharatpur in Rajasthan, North West India, was taken by Mike.  Sadly, he believes that this species/race is now extinct in the wild.
