Articles 3947 Idg5 JPf25 G UD Group Logo Boxed

Fri 7th February, 2020, 7:45pm to 8:45pm

This talk replaces the previously advertised one as the speaker is indisposed.

The talk will concentrate on the wildlife of the northern part of Botswana from the Okavango Delta, along the Chobe River finishing up beside the Zambesi with a look at Mosi Oa Tunya (or the Smoke that Thunders) which is better known in the UK as the Victoria Falls.

Tony Westaway enjoys taking wildlife photographs for fun and would describe himself as a keen amateur wildlife watcher and photographer. He has been lucky enough to go on safaris to several African countries and intends taking you up close and personal with some of Africa's best-loved birds and mammals together with some of the less-well known ones.

We get the best speakers and also have one of the best lecture theatres on the Loughborough University campus - tiered padded seats. wheelchair access and a sound system with a hearing loop - it is of more than adequate size for our audience, which gives everybody that bit of extra space.

Tea, coffee and hot chocolate should be available - 70p or 50p if you bring your own mug.

A selection of wild bird food is usually available for sale.

Lecture Theatre U020, Brockington Building, Loughborough University, Epinal Way, Loughborough.
