Scottish Ornithologists’ Club celebrate Ayr 800

A public lecture entitled Birds of Ayrshire has been organised by the Ayrshire Branch of the Scottish Ornithologists’ Club in celebration of the 800th Anniversary of Ayr being made a Royal Burgh.

It will be held in the Carnegie Library, Ayr (enter from Garden Street) at 7.45 pm on Tuesday 25 October. Everyone with an interest in the wild birds of Ayrshire is welcome and entry is free. A raffle will be held on the night to defray costs and refreshments will be available.

The speaker, Angus Hogg, is the bird recorder for Ayrshire, an eminent ornithologist of national renown and much in demand as a speaker. He aims to examine some of the changes in Ayrshire birdlife over the past 25 years and the extent to which man-made change may be responsible.

He will trace the ebb and flow of the County’s birdlife over an Ayrshire year and consider some questions arising from widespread impressions of changes in garden birds. Are some species really disappearing while others become more abundant? Why are species new to Ayrshire beginning to appear? Is change an effect of climate or a normal biological cycle? Can we do anything about it in our gardens or across the county?

The talk will be illustrated by slides and there will be displays and information about birdwatching in Ayrshire and across Scotland.
