Birds of a Feather – A Talk by Mick Brown

Posted by Tenby Museum on Oct 8, 2018 Blog, Event Archive No Comments

Join local ornithologist Mick Brown on Friday, October 19th at 7 p.m. for his presentation Birds of Feather.

Using his own photographs, Mick will take a detailed look at birds and the evolution of their feathers –  the many different types, their various uses through time as ceremonial artefacts, fashion objects, and even as a currency for paying rent ! All of this and more at Tenby Museum.

 

Mick has been working on small expedition ships in the Arctic and Antarctica for the past 18 years. For over 40 years, Mick has been associated with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Parks, spending time on the island nature reserves of Skomer, Skokholm, Ramsey, Grassholm and St Margaret’s Island. His knowledge about the natural environment and its flora and fauna has been the subject of many popular talks over the years and this one will be no exception.

Tickets are £5.00 (£4.00 to Friends of Tenby Museum members) and it is advisable to book for this talk.  Contact the museum for more details.
