The aim is to have a short AGM followed by a coffee break allowing members to talk to various Officers and members of Devon Birds.  This will be followed by an interesting talk entitled 'Inglorious – Hen Harriers and grouse shooting' by Mark Avery, formerly Conservation Director of the RSPB since when he has become just as well-known as an author, blogger and campaigner. A life-long birder, Mark is also a passionate and knowledgeable conservationist; his book, “Fighting for Birds” is a good introduction to many of the nature conservation battles he’s been involved in over the last 25 years.  Mark is a passionate and engaging speaker and his talk is certain to be lively and controversial – one not to miss.
