Dr. Stephen Newton, Senior Conservation Officer for BirdWatch Ireland, will give a talk on FAME, the Future of the Atlantic Marine Environment. What has this got to do with Seabird conservation? A lot! Seabirds are just about the easiest to monitor and most accessible indicators of the health of the marine environment. Factors affecting the distribution of seabirds will be highlighted and other issues such as offshore wind farms and mink on islands will be discussed.
Michael O'Clery, wildlife artist and author, will give a short talk on the upcoming Dingle Peninsula Bird Report 2011-13. 15 years of bird recording in the area has revealed some significant changes to our local bird populations and Michael will highlight some of the most interesting and dramatic changes during the time the Report has been compiled.
