From Andrew Lapworth




referring to a future speaker at the club.
NICOLE KHAN (March 13th 2019);
 
Dear all
I went to this talk at SBBO on Thursday. She was an excellent speaker and I'm sure she'll be well received at the Club. Her talk describes Operation Turtle Dove and the efforts going in to hanging on to existing local populations of these lovely summer visitors. An excellent website supports the initiative. I think this might be worth sharing with members via the emails and links on our website




best wishes


Andrew
