Based on over 50 years first hand experience, this presentation will examine the changing green face of Hampstead Heath both seasonal and longer term. In particular the talk will explore the impacts of global warming and changes in air quality since the Clean Air Acts and will also look to the future.

10/11/20 19:00 Hawfinches & Goshawks in Surrey Mark Mallalieu

Remember the Hawfinch invasion of 2017/18? With other birdwatchers, Mark took the opportunity to learn as much as possible about these elusive birds, then used this knowledge to discover whether Hawfinches are actually more widespread in Sussex than the scant earlier records suggested. His talk will cover the findings of this fieldwork so far. He will also describe the return of the magnificent Goshawk to the county, with advice on how and when to see this apex avian predator.

Slugs are not a popular group with many people, especially those who are keen gardeners. However, they have fascinating life histories, behaviours and not all consume live plants. In this talk we’ll explore the fauna of slugs within Britain and around London.
