Indoor Event 7.00-8.30pm (doors open at 6.20pm)
It is 60 years since the Society published George Temperley’s ground-breaking ‘A History of the Birds of Durham’. Durham Bird Club has been celebrating this anniversary with a project that is bringing the wildlife of the past to the people of tomorrow.
Keith Bowey will tell us some of the stories of both people and birds from the recent and distant past which form such an integral part of the new bird atlas for County Durham.
Keith Bowey is co-ordinator for the Birds of Durham Heritage Project. He is also a local ecologist and environmental practitioner and one of Durham’s best known ornithologists.
Venue: Great North Museum: Hancock, Barras Bridge NE2 4PT
