Starlings - A Star Act

Date / Time
Start date: 
Tue, 2019-11-12 19:30 - 21:30

Robert Magee of Gwent Wildlife Trust presents an intriguing talk about these masters of murmuration and mimicry. With their undeserved reputation for being argumentative and greedy, the Starling is one of our most interesting birds. Highly sociable with a range of fascinating behaviours, this talk will give you a whole new perspective on this now threatened bird.

Please note that Tuesday 12th November is the correct date for this talk, not Fri, 22nd November as previously publicised.
