October 16 – AGM followed by Guest speaker Elliot Newton

Elliot is one of the leading lights in local conservation and organises conservation work and quarterly workshops for the Kingston Biodiversity Group. On a range of subjects, Elliot brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise and energy to the borough’s Biodiversity Action Plan. He has been a member of this Society for the past three years and we are delighted that he has offered to talk to us about some of the projects that Kingston Biodiversity Group are involved with.


November 20 – John Buckingham – How Birds Work Part 2

John is a widely published wildlife photographer and a well-known lecturer and freelance tutor in birds and wildlife with the Universities of Sussex and Surrey. He has travelled widely and has led birdwatching holidays throughout the UK and worldwide. He has previously given us a lecture on ‘How Birds Work, Part 1’ and members have been especially enthusiastic about hearing his second lecture on ‘How Birds Work, Part 2’.  I am sure we are in for another informative, interesting, educational and entertaining talk.


December 18 – Members’ Slides

This is members’ opportunity to show their own slides and digital photos of birds and other wildlife.
