London Natural History Society The place for wildlife in London

London Natural History Society - The place for wildlife in London


Wood Warbler SQUAREMany of you have watched the talk that I gave for the LNHS last November on Hawfinches and Goshawks in Sussex.

I thought you’d like to know that the SOS (Sussex Ornithology Society) is running a series of virtual talks that started with four talks in January 2021 and 5 more scheduled during February to March, with more to follow.

The first four formed the main part of our Annual Conference and the other five can be booked via the SOS Eventbrite webpage.
