Mark Avery, former Conservation Director of RSPB will be signing copies of his new book, Fighting For Birds at NWT Cley Marshes visitor centre on Saturday 3 November.
In this book, Mark mixes a great many stories from his professional life at the RSPB with personal anecdotes and passionate arguments on past and present issues in bird and nature conservation. A personal, philosophical and political history of 25 years of bird conservation, it provides an instructive and amusing read for all those who would like a glimpse into the birds and wildlife conservation world.
The books will be available to buy at the centre. Avery will be there from 10am until 12pm. Why not combine your visit with lunch in the café and a walk down on to the marshes?
Chris Packham in the book’s Foreword and on his website said: “If you have any real interest in the workings of saving species and their habitats then it’s a tremendously rewarding ‘must read’.”
NWT Cley Marshes Visitor Centre is on the A149 Coast Road, north Norfolk. It is free to enter. There is a small charge to visit the nature reserve.
