“A tour through the birds of the Walsrode Bird Park, Germany”.

Last year our Editor, Sheena, spent an extended period in Europe and found time to visit a few bird collections. Among them was the famed World Bird Park (Weltvogelpark) at Walsrode in Germany. This is the largest bird park in the world in terms of number of species and area. Only Jurong Bird Park in Singapore has more individual birds. Many of us would love to visit, but luckily Sheena is a keen photographer and she has captured images of many of the birds and of the layout of Walsrode. In this presentation Sheena will give her impression of the park, discuss the birds and some of the history to whet our appetites. An interesting meeting for sure.

Our meeting will commence with a Short Talk from Alan Hazleton on “My Different Aviaries”. This will be an introduction prior to an Aviary visit to Alan’s place on April 7.

Visitors welcome!
