'Fred Gould's life in Birding'
Gary & Lindsey Gould
Their dad sadly died last year at the age of 80 after a life of birding in Cumbria and North Lancashire. This is a very personal selection of some of their favourite slides. Fred was a former Chair of the Kendal Natural History Society and was well known for his talks, guided walks and passion for birding at a host of sites in the locality.
Original talk cancelled due to ill health. To be rescheduled in a later program.
‘A Year in the Life’ A return visit by the excellent, award winning nature photographer Mick Durham who talks about his trips in 2018.
