28th October 7:30pm to 9:30pm Gresham Village Hall (Hybrid Hall/Zoom event)

In this talk, our Vice President Nigel will guide you through the wide range of habitats, and showcase the avian delights of this region, including several endemic or near endemic species such as Caucasian and Caspian Snowcocks, Caucasian Grouse, Great Rosefinch and Mountain Chiffchaff, as well as Western Palearctic specialities such as Red-tailed Wheatear, Güldenstädt's Redstart and Radde's Accentor.

Nigel is a lifelong birder and an experienced tour leader and bird guide, working mainly in Asia and Africa for Rockjumper, as well as the polar regions for Quark Expeditions. He was formerly a publisher of bird books, retiring as head of natural history at Bloomsbury Publishing. He is author or co-author of three books including the field guide Birds of the Horn of Africa and the site guide Where to Watch Birds in Britain, both of which have new editions currently in preparation. Nigel first visited Georgia in 1983, and has made many visits to the Caucasus region since then.

Please let us know on nenbc@aol.co.uk if you need the Zoom link sent to you - we normally send it out a day or so before the event. We would also appreciate it if you could give us a heads up if you are planning to attend in person at the hall as it helps with our planning, however if you do decide on the night you fancy a trip out, you would still be very welcome so please just come along!
