Pushing the Boundaries Tour
21st January to 4th February 2013
We start next Monday night, 21st January and travel for 2 weeks around the country. You don’t have to be a member of the hosting bird club, just come along to the nearest venue. Hope you can make it!
“One of the most inspiring events I have ever seen” is how attendees, coming from all over Europe and North America, summed up the first Arctic Gullfest in April 2012. This evening brings together the hosts of that event. Martin and Sharon, from Sheffield, UK will talk about pushing the boundaries of birding over the last 12 months, some of which have been kept off the Birding Frontiers blog, especially for this tour. Birding architects Tormod and his wife Elin will talk about their family move to Varanger, in Arctic Norway. They combine pioneering architecture and conservation while engaging ordinary local people- pushing the boundaries in how people and nature work better together. It promises to be a highly entertaining and inspiring evening- not to be missed!
