Fri 9th February, 2018, 7:45pm

The Loughborough RSPB Group present Ashley Grove talking about the birds of The Gambia.

The Gambia is one of the best known and most loved of worldwide bird watching destinations, with close to 600 species of birds, most of which are colourful and approachable.

Ashley has led photography tours there since 2011 and consequently has a great collection of images that grow with each new visit. This talk, like the tours starts at the coast leading up the river and back again, discovering the wonders of The Gambia all the way. With the tour concentrating on the Kingfishers, Bee-Eaters and Rollers, these are well covered, but the magnificent support cast of multi-coloured extras, make this a worthwhile evening entertainment.

Ashley offers a range of talks to suit a variety of groups and organisations, each bursting with top quality digital images from his portfolio. He is a recommended speaker for the RSPB and the RHS. Since 2006, Wildlife groups such as The RSPB, The Wildlife Trusts, The National Trust and others, have been impressed and entertained. Photographic clubs, WI's & U3A's have also enjoyed the talks
