Chasing the Day – Keith Offord

Keith says:-

“Some of the most remarkable journeys and the most intriguing behaviour occur within the world of birds, and much of it is driven by light.

Whether it is the trigger stimulating the first utterance of a springtime dawn chorus, or the much more insidious shift in behaviour as the days lengthen in early spring, light has a vital role in the world of birds and has resulted in some quite extraordinary outcomes.

This talk investigates the many facets of light as a driving force in bird behaviour and follows migrants across the world in their quest for the longer day.”

This illustrated presentation will take place at St Bridget’s Church Centre, Church Road, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 7HL.
