An illustrated talk entitled 'Owls, Wildcats, Otters and the secret lives of Badgers' by Malcolm Ingham

Location: Bromborough Civic Centre, Allport Lane, Bromborough, Wirral
Postcode: CH62 7HR (Google map)

Malcolm's talk will take us from his days at Wirral Country Park, Thurstaston and his work at the Wildlife Unit including being a prosecution expert witness for the police, being on the RSPCA Special Operations team on badger digging and baiting through to his move to Wales, where he uses webcams to monitor otters & badgers on his land.

Malcolm has just published a book about his life. Called 'From Badgers to Nighthawks: Adventures of a Wildlife Ranger' it is full of stories including the trials and tribulations of a badger release, chasing a deer in Birkenhead, rescuing a Saker Falcon off an Iranian ship and returning an American Nighthawk to Belize!

If you're looking for a good Christmas present for a loved one, why not buy a copy of his book which will be on sale at the meeting !!

Winter Wonderland - Malltraeth RSPB Reserve

Location: Meet at the Tudor Rose Pub on the A540 (Parkgate Road near to the 'Two Mills' junction with the A550) at 8.00 am
Postcode: CH66 9PD (Google map)

A long overdue visit to Malltraeth Reserve. This area was made famous by the bird artist Charles Tunnicliffe, whose home 'Shorelands' overlooks the pools at Malltraeth. This is a great place for winter wildfowl, with the Pintail being the local speciality. We also hope to see other ducks together with birds of prey (such as Hen Harrier, Merlin etc..) as well as waders. There are no facilities here, so come wrapped up warm and with food / drinks.

Time: 8.00 am

Price: Free (but you'll need to be a member of the RSPB to gain free entry into the RSPB reserve)

Booking essential
