About the event

Iolo is Wales’ best known naturalist, a regular presenter of BBC’s  Spring, Autumn and Winter Watch TV series and an outspoken conservationist and powerful campaigner for wildlife. He lives near Newtown and his talk will be about his early days working as a Species Officer for the RSPB –  from the farmer who held an egg collector over a 40-foot cliff,  to a colleague who kept half a village awake with his snoring, and an oyster catcher that briefly held up Prince Charles’ train. 

This talk is part of a programme of events which make up Oswestry's first Festival of Nature, which runs from the 5th July to the 24th August 2019.
