Spectacled Eider is one of the many reasons I would like to go to Alaska. This Wednesday night at Bangor Bird-group local Ornitholidays Bird-guide Paul Rodgers will be giving us a talk on the Birds and Wildlife of Alaska. The talk will be in the usual venue in the ground floor lecture theater in the Brambell Building at the University of Bangor. Doors open at 7 for a 7.30 start. All welcome.
