Inspired by Birds - Peter Holden MBE

From Victorian Britain to the present day, birds have been the subject for painters, composers, writers, poets and sculptors from earliest time's right up to the present day. In this presentation, Peter will look at a wide variety of birds through the works of many different artists of both the 20th and 21st centuries, discovering what inspired them and how they incorporated their observations into their art. For many artists their works were also an important contribution to the conservation movement that was slowly developing at the same time. Do please join us and Peter for a fascinating presentation.

Published in April 2019, Adrian's new book is the RSPB Guide to Birdsong.

The plan is that we all get to share some of the pleasure that birdsong brings, and everyone leaves feeling uplifted.
