Urban Peregrines talk at Bristol Zoo Gardens on Friday 15th February 2019

Posted on: 06 Feb 2019

Join peregrine falcon expert Ed Drewitt for an informative, illustrated talk about this fascinating bird of prey at Bristol Zoo Gardens on Friday 15th February 2019.

Bristol Zoo Gardens

Ed has been studying peregrine falcons for the last 20 years so he knows a thing or two about their living patterns and habitats.


He'll dispense illuminating insights into exactly what makes them tick, along with fascinating analysis on why they're using our towns and cities and how, by studying their diet, we can find out more about them.


He's also carried out extensive colour-ringing studies and will reveal where the young peregrine falcons go when they finally fly the nest.


The venue is accessible to wheelchair users and there will be a hearing loop in place.  The event runs from 7pm until 8pm. Tickets cost £5 and can be purchased by calling 0117 903 0609 or by emailing mleivers@bristolzoo.org.uk
