Thursday 15th March : Indoor Meeting – Birds & Climate Change – Speaker James Pearce-Higgins (BTO)

James is a member of senior management at BTO and is the Director of Science and leads the BTO’s Climate Change Research, providing strategic oversight of BTO Science which encompasses both monitoring and research.
James chairs the BTO/JNCC/RSPB Breeding Bird Survey Steering Group.
Prior to this, for eleven years he worked in Scotland for RSPB, leading a wide range of upland research projects.

Climate change is a much discussed topic, but what does the science say? In this talk, we will look at how climate change is already affecting bird distributions, populations and communities, with a particular focus on the UK. Future climate change is predicted to be much greater than what we have experienced so far, which may have considerable implications for the birds we see around us, and for their conservation. We will take a look into the future to see how things might change.
Come and join us for a fascinating and thought provoking evening.
