The last of the spring programme of talks takes place this Tuesday 7th JuneJohn Buckingham, who has recently moved into the area, will talk on ‘Wildlife through the Seasons’. John very kindly agreed to step into the gap left when Jean Hollingsworth let us know she would be too ill to speak on the history of the coalfields of Kent.  I know that it is only a few weeks since our last talk but I do hope that you will want to come and hear John.  He is a very professional and entertaining speaker.

John’s career over the past 40 years has included life as a freelance bird and wildlife photographer, tutor and lecturer. For much of that time John and his wife Sue have also run a highly successful wildlife travel business which has taken them around the world, opening the eyes of others in search of exciting birds, animals and flowers. They looked after a woodland nature reserve near Tonbridge for Kent Wildlife Trust and John is now, in retirement, a ‘bird ringer’ and a Trustee and member of Council running the Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory and Field Centre with its 600 members.   

The talk will start at 8pm with free refreshments from 7:30 and will be held in the Ringwould and Kingsdown CoE School, Glen Road, Kingsdown, Deal, Kent, CT14 8DD. Members £3, Non-Members £4
