We have invited Brian Clews to come and talk to us about the wildlife on the Jubilee River on the evening of 15 November. More details to follow as soon as they are available.
Brian has lived in the area for 48 years, been involved with the local RSPB Group for 40 years, and published the monthly Berkshire Bird Bulletin for 30 years from 1986 to 2015. He was a co-author for the latest Berkshire Bird Atlas project (a countywide survey and conservation programme), and has written three other local books. Through working part-time with WildGuides Publishers, he has contributed to about 30 other natural history books.
The Jubilee River, the flood alleviation scheme from Cookham to Datchet, was constructed in 2000. Brian’s talk looks at the wildlife it has affected and attracted. (This is of particular interest to Datchet given the proposals to build a second flood alleviation scheme from Southlea in Datchet to Teddington.)
Please note: There will be a small charge for this event to cover the speaker’s fees, drinks and nibbles.
