Keith Betton, Chairman and County Recorder of the Hampshire Ornithological Society, is a birdwatcher, writer and broadcaster.¬† He has studied Peregrines for almost ten years and leads a team of enthusiasts who have helped them to return to Winchester and the rest of Hampshire. In a beautifully illustrated talk, he will explain how the world's fastest bird lives and thrives alongside us, and how for many years their very existence in the UK was on a knife-edge. Afterwards, he and a team of volunteers will look for where the Peregrines are perched and will use high-powered optical equipment to show them to attendees.
Tickets are ¬£5 for adults and ¬£3 for children under 16 (+ booking fee). Available online, by phone (01962 857275) or at the Cathedral Box Office.¬†
Funds raised from this talk will go into maintaining the nesting site.
