Mark Avery comes to Bangor Bird group this Wednesday

Tomorrow night Mark will talk about the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon in North America - formerly the most numerous bird on the planet, and about his campaign to ban driven grouse shooting.
Mark worked for the RSPB for 25 years and was the Conservation Director for 13 of them. He now writes columns for Birdwatch and British Wildlife and has written a number of books including A Message from Martha - the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon and its relevance today, Inglorious - conflict in the uplands and Remarkable Birds.
          Doors open at the Brambell Building at the University at 7pm for a 7.30 start
