WEDNESDAY 17TH NOVEMBER 2021 - TALK BY ERIC MCCABE 'NORTH WEST SCOTLAND WILDLIFE'

Location: We are hoping that this talk will be at the Methodist Hall, West Marketgait, Dundee at 7.30pm. As we do not know what the COVID restricts might be at this time there is a chance that this talk may have to be done via ZOOM. In the latter case contact Darell Berthon (darell.berthon@icloud.com) for access to the talk.

Eric McCabe is a well known local wildlife photographer who gives wonderful talks to our local Dundee Group each year. The exact title of the talk is yet to be decided but it will be about the wonderful scenery and wildlife to be found on the North West coast of Scotland. More details to come!

Time: 7.30pm
