Monthly Talk 2nd January 2020


SPEAKER: David Boag

We may not have dramatic lions or elephants but we still have a variety of fantastic British Mammals. Our Serengeti dramas are played out on a smaller stage where predators and prey sneak through the grass undercover of darkness. I have not photographed every British mammal but most of them are represented in this talk. Of course many are small, secretive and nocturnal - features that make them fascinating and add to their mystery. Their elusiveness makes photography a challenge but my images will enable you to get close views to enjoy their secret lives and discover many fascinating facts.
