Hi folks the latest Conference Calls is available to download now at Talking Naturally.
Welcome to the Pentax-sponsored Conference Calls, THE panel podcast for birders and wildlife enthusiasts who like their natural history information served with chat and bad jokes. This week the programme is chaired by Charlie Moores with panel regular John Hague and guest panelist the BTO’s Nick Moran. We’re joined by David ‘The Urban Birder’ Lindo, and Ceri Levy the driving force behind the conservation initiative ‘Ghosts of Gone Birds’. In this programme we talk about what mega-shorebird we’d each like to discover, we have a short pre-recorded interview with Dominic Price from Plantlife about conservation headlands and arable plants, and we’ll be announcing a fantastic book give-way sponsored by Jim Martin at A&C Black/Bloomsbury.
If that wasn’t enough David talks about his new book ‘The Urban Birder’ in our new (ie could go horribly wrong but we’re keeping our fingers crossed) ‘Sell us your Book’ feature and reads a poem he wrote specially for ‘Music and Migration’ (an ambient album compiled by Martin Holm), and we slam the slaughter of migrants in Malta as we discuss Ceri’s plans to join a BirdLife Malta Raptor Camp this autumn. Not bad for fifty minutes eh…
Sadly as Tom was sat on his arse in Cornwall there’s also no swearing!
