AN EVENING WITH CHRIS SPERRING by Chris Sperring (JOINT WITH DOS)

Chris Sperring is a widely known professional wildlife conservationist working for the Hawk and Owl Trust. He also presents and broadcasts on TV and Radio. He lectures on a wide range of subjects, writes articles for newspapers and magazines and always enjoys a good debate, especially about wildlife conservation. Expect an exhilarating and stimulating evening taking in all aspects of wildlife conservation based on his vast experience. Chris is currently carrying out a survey of long eared owls in the west country which typically inhabit coniferous woodland (photo).

Chris is also a wildlife photographer and whilst not proclaiming to be the world’s best he just loves taking pictures whilst out in the field using the camera as a notebook. “Anyone can become a wildlife photographer in the digital era” he insists “you don’t have to spend a fortune on a camera. Even the quality of photos taken with mobile phones is improving.”
