On Saturday 6th April, 2013, rather than our usual general meeting we will be hosting Dr Anne Fowler who will be conducting a full day bird workshop. As it has just been organised cost has not yet been finalised but make sure you keep the day free. You will not be disappointed. Anne is one of those speakers/educators who can keep you on the edge of your seat all day and still want more at home time. You will leave having learnt many aspects of bird care and with the enthusiasm to go home and want to put everything into practice asap. Start time is 9am, finishing at 5pm. Tea and coffee and some food will be provided but please bring a plate. Feel free to bring along friends who are interested in birds. Many topics will be covered including – initial first aid; hand rearing; feeding; orphans; common diseases [viral, fungal, bacterial, parasitic, etc]; fractures and wounds; zoonoses. Questions will be most welcome.
