Oadby & Wigston Local Group - Wildlife and Birds of Poland with Richard Bashford
About the event
Join Richard on a virtual tour of Poland’s most well-known wildlife locations. Richard has made many trips to Poland over the last twenty years, and this talk will firstly illustrate the breathtaking world-famous Biebrza National Park Marshes – home to terns dancing over the wetlands and waders galore, including the bizarre Great Snipe and multi-colored Ruffs. The fields and meadows here are also home to iconic species such as Corncrakes and Cranes. Richard will then show you the atmospheric primeval forests of Białoweiza, where most of the European woodpeckers can be found, alongside Nutcrackers, Pygmy Owl, and the star of the show – European Bison.
We are delighted to offer this talk as free to attend; however, any donations you can give will make a huge difference to our work and help cover the costs of running the talks. If you can, please donate here.
The event will be online via Zoom. We will provide you with all the details you need to log into Zoom and to join the webinar once you have registered.
The webinar will be recorded and made available on YouTube afterwards.
