Watson Birds Festival, 20-22 September 2013 in Dalry, Dumfries & Galloway22 August 2013
The annual Watson Birds Festival returns to Dalry this year between 20-22 September. The Watson Birds project was established in memory of two legendary ornithologists and Raptor Study Group members, Donald Watson and his son Jeff. There’ll be plenty of family-friendly events during the festival including an art exhibition, a free drop-in bird ringing session, a guided walk and a photography masterclass by celebrated wildlife photographer Laurie Campbell. There will also be two lectures featuring Dr Miguel Ferrer (Spain) discussing the interaction of birds and windfarms, and Richard Evans (RSPB Scotland) discussing his work on the history of eagles in the UK as determined by place names. Keep an eye on the Watson Birds website for details of how to get involved.
