Steve will talk about this enigmatic and hard-to-find species. He has been studying breeding birds all his life and Honey-buzzards for the past 25 years, which has resulted in him having two major papers published in British Birds as well as other papers elsewhere. Steve is well respected in birding circles, and is an excellent speaker.

GRMG doesn’t have members paying subscriptions, so needs to make a charge to cover the costs of these talks. Any surplus made on ticket sales will be used by the group for raptor conservation in Gloucestershire.
GRMG is just a little over one year old, but brings together a number of members of GNS and other groups, all of whom have a special interest in birds of prey and owls and has been supported by GNS with grant aid funding enabling the construction and siting of Owl nest boxes. Monitoring, recording and ringing of other birds of prey is carried out by some members of the group, other activities in support of raptors is planned for the future including a special survey of Little Owls beginning in 2016.
