Zoom Talk: Birds of the World's Most Remote Islands, Thursday 23 September at 7pm

Keith Betton will be regaling attendees with fascinating tales of the "Birds of the World's Most Remote Islands".

Keith's talk will take us on journeys to see some of the world's rarest seabirds, and in some of the most remote corners of the seas, from islands in the middle of the Atlantic, 1,750 miles from the nearest continent, where the RSPB is desperately trying to save albatrosses, to rocky islets in the Southern Ocean that are aligned to New Zealand and Australia.

Keith is a media trainer, broadcaster and writer, and, most importantly for us, a keen world birder having seen over 8,500 species in more than 100 countries. Keith is heavily involved in bird monitoring in Hampshire, where he is County Recorder and Chairman of the Hampshire Ornithological Society. He has been a Council Member of both the RSPB and the BTO, and is currently Vice President of the BTO.

Our Zoom talks are open to members (free) and non-members (£4) of the Chichester Local Group, but please book in advance if you'd like to attend. Contact Rob Yarham for more details, how to pay and to book by emailing chichesterbirds@gmail.com or phoning 07545 376074.
