North-East Scotland branch
Evening talks programme
Sportsman’s Club, 11 Queen’s Rd, Aberdeen
The following Mondays at 7.30pm.
06 Oct 2014 Social evening & Steve Willis – A light-hearted look at the life of a wildlife guide. Followed by quiz
Whilst Steve is well known in the region for his work on saving Red Squirrels, he has also spent a couple of years as a wildlife
guide around Scotland and further afield. What promises to be an entertaining insight into life in the driving seat on tours will
be followed by a quiz being put together by the branches’ very own Jenny Lennon. Jenny’s aiming to provide a few tricky ID challenges, as
well as looking for some local knowledge. There might even be some non‐bird questions!
