The Frank Theatre, Wills Physics Laboratory, Tyndall Avenue, Bristol, BS8 1TL

For 20 years Ed Drewitt has been studying the life of urban peregrines in Bristol, finding out what they eat and where they go when they leave the nest.  Along the way there have been many surprises both when they hunt and where they travel.  This lecture will tell us more about how the peregrine is adapted to life in the city.

Ed is a freelance naturalist showing people wildlife, teaching birdsong and travelling the world.  He works part time at the University of Bristol, working with students in the teaching lab of Biological Sciences.



This lecture is organised by the Friends of the University of Bristol Botanic Garden.

This lecture will be held at the Frank Theatre, Wills Physics Laboratory, Tyndall Avenue, Bristol, BS8 1TL.

All lectures start at 7.30pm (except in March) and are free to Friends on production of their membership card.  Visitors will be asked for a donation (suggested £5).  Attendees can use any University car park: the nearest are in University Walk and The Hawthorns (no booking is necessary).
