Suffolk Wildlife Trust

From Woodbridge to the Horn of Africa ....

Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Woodbridge Wildlife Group welcome back audiences when they hold the first of their series of autumn talks at Woodbridge Community Hall on Thursday 21 October at 7.30 pm.

“For our first talk we welcome speaker James Firebrace, who will be taking us on a journey overseas when he presents an illustrated talk entitled “Human interactions with birds and wildlife in the Horn of Africa and Arabia in the context of climate change, drought and conflict” said Phil Smith, chair of SWT Woodbridge Wildlife Group. “James is a keen bird watcher and member of Suffolk Bird Group, with whom we are joining to present and publicise this talk. James has known this region for over 40 years and is Chairman of the British Yemeni Society”

Adam Gretton, Indoor events organiser of the Suffolk Bird Group said “SBG are delighted to be holding this joint talk with SWT’s Woodbridge Wildlife Group, especially as it will be our first face to face indoor event since February 2020. James has had long experience of this fascinating area and we greatly look forward to his insights. He will illustrate his talk though the stories of 12 species of bird and mammal. All are most welcome, whether SBG/SWT members or not.”

“Admission to the talk is £3 for adults with under 16’s free and whilst it is not necessary to book in advance, we are asking our audience to arrive in plenty of time so that we can get them seated before 7.30 pm.” Phil added “Seating will be set out to give room for distancing and extra measures will be in place to keep our audience members safe during attendance . We hope to see friends old and new at the talk”.
