Family Nightjar Walk – Greenham Common @ Greenham Common
May 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join BBOWT on this short walk to Sandleford heath (from the Pyle Hill Car park), to witness the amazing night-time antics of the nightjar – the weird churring, the bizarre wing clapping and the enigmatic “gwip” call.

Having arrived back in May from their winter holidays in Africa, these birds are now setting up territories wherever they can find suitable heathland habitat for rearing their young .

Wrap up warm for this evening walk; the ground can be uneven so sturdy footwear is essential. Insect repellent is a good idea, as is a torch for the walk back to the cars by which time it will be almost dark. Binoculars may also be useful before it gets too dark.

The event is free, but donations will be accepted on the day.

Climate Change Talk @ St Lawrence's Church
Jun 3 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Climate Change Talk @ St Lawrence's Church | England | United Kingdom

Climate change seems to always be in the news these days.

The science shows that the world is warming as a result of human activities.  There is also increasing evidence of the effects on people and nature, as a result of heatwaves, droughts, floods and wildfire.  Many people are deeply worried about climate change as recent protests show, but what can we actually do about it?  Can we really make a difference?

This talk will give us an overview of the science and some of the solutions: both in terms of what we can do as individuals and collectively.

Mike has spent most of his scientific career doing research on the impacts of climate change on the natural environment; he currently works for the government conservation agency Natural England, is an Honorary Research Associate at Oxford University and a lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; he’s also a Hungerford resident and a licensed lay minister at St. Lawrence’s Church.
