The RSPB North Bucks Group will host a talk, Trinidad & Tobago, by Paul Fuller this week.
With a lifelong interest in all natural history but, in particular, birds and mammals, combined with a passion for photography, Paul has travelled extensively around the world to try and both see and capture on camera all forms of wildlife.
He lives in Northampton and holds a bat handlers licence for that county, recording birds and bats close to home as a volunteer warden at Pitsford Water Nature Reserve and Yardley Chase Estate.
This isn't Paul's first talk for the group - he got the 2015 season off to a great start with his talk on 'Orange Cats and Blue Cows.'
This time he’ll take ticket-holders to a place with an Old Colonial feel, but firmly in the New World.
With a mix of rain-forest and stunning beaches, highlights will include dashing hummingbirds, bright scarlet ibis and the bizarre nocturnal cave-dwelling oilbird.
The indoor meeting will take place on Thursday (September 14) at The Cruck Barn, City Discovery Centre, Bradwell Abbey MK13 9AP.
Doors open at 7.15 pm for a prompt start at 7.45 pm.
Free refreshments will be served during the interval and admission is £3 for local group members, £4 for visitors, and £1 for children.
