An evening hosted by Waveney Bird Club and SOG enjoyed a lively and interesting talk by Richard Crossley, who flew in from America the previous day to talked to a packed house about his amazing and innovative new ID Books. He went on to answer questions from the audience and applauded both clubs for holding the event in aid of local wildlife projects.
The event also included the launch of the Campaign against Raptor Persecution and talks by Guy Horrocks (RSPB Senior Investigations Officer), shocked and amazed the audience by the horrific crimes taking place against our wildlife. In response, Simon Barnes launched the local project and explained to the audience that nobody can pick and choose what laws we all follow – a crime is a crime and those committing them should be held accountable.
SOG and WBC are very pleased to welcome Simon as the patron CARP.
Proceeds from the evening will fund local conservation projects; a final figure will be announced later.
