Dr Miriam Darlington set off in search of all 13 species of European owl. She travelled from her home in Devon to the Hebrides, and from Finland to Southern Spain, stopping off in Serbia to see the spectacular communal roosts of Long-eared Owls in Kikinda.
This illustrated talk with readings from her book Owl Sense will describe her journey and some of the owls she encountered along the way.
Followed by the opportunity to buy and have signed Miriams’s publications.
