Popular talks programme

The 30 June featured our last talk of the 2018 season before the Summer break. We look forward to resuming in September.

There have been some very interesting topics and the talks have been well attended by Friends' members. We enjoyed…

  • A Life in the Park – John Bartram, interviewed by Richard Gray

  • History & Stories of Richmond Park –  Ron Crompton

  • Bird Song 1: Medium/large birds in park – Peter Burrows-Smith

  • Bird Song 2: Small birds & Spring migrants – Peter Burrows-Smith

  • Buildings of Richmond Park – Max Lankester

  • An Introduction to the Flora of Richmond Park – Mary Clare Sheahan

  • Butterflies – Nigel Jackman

A big thank you to all our speakers for their great contributions, not forgetting Geri Cummins (the lady welcoming our members every Saturday) as well as Francisca Sconce and the Royal Entomological Society for providing the freebies with lots of information about insects for our butterflies talk. We would also like to thank Xanthi Giallousi for organising the talks programme.

Our season of talks resumes on 15 September with "Ant hills" led by Dr Tim King. You can see the rest of the programme here.
