His talk will then describe his work on habitat surveys around nest sites along with contents of owl pellets in these areas and the relationship between habitat components of each nest site and diet.

Field Trip to Moor Green Lakes, Berks
Forthcoming Field Trip to Moor Green Lakes in Berkshire on 13th January 2019
The meet-up time for this trip is 0930 in the Reserve car park which can be found about halfway along Lower Sandhurst Road. The reserve is situated a couple of miles to the south east of Finchampstead, which in turn is perhaps 6 miles south east of Reading. From Finchampstead take the B3016 southwards and turn right into Cricket Hill which then becomes Lower Sandhurst Road. The car park is on the right after about ½ a mile. The habitat is gravel pits and woodlands with open spaces. See you there.
