An introduction to common species of birds in the UK, where to find them and how you can help them.
Join Green Minds for a fascinating illustrated talk about birds. Our speaker will be Jack Rivers, Community Ecologist from Devon Biodiversity Records Centre.
There are over 500 species of birds within the UK with many of those species utilising gardens and urban spaces across the country. The mosaic of green and urban spaces within Plymouth provides fantastic opportunity for birds, but which birds are you most likely to see? Why are they there and what do they get up to? What threats do they face and how can you help them? Register for this free talk to find out the answers!
