Chiff Chaff sat on a branch by Don Morris

Peter Holden MBE gives a fascinating talk to tie-in with the much-loved project he helped set up - the Big Garden Birdwatch.

Talks are approx. 1 hour long, with time for questions. Limited space available, please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

As there is a cost involved in putting on the Learning Lunchtime talks, donations to the Forest of Marston Vale are much appreciated. There will be a collection bucket in the room or you can click here to donate online if you'd prefer. Parking charges also apply. Friends of the Forest get free parking all year round* at the Forest Centre - click here for more information.

Please note: this event will be subject to the most up-to-date Covid-19 regulations at the time of the event.
