About Paisley Natural History Society Illustrated Talks

Hosted by experts in the field, these talks provide an interesting insight into various natural history topics. The talks are open to everyone and there's no need to book, just come along.

Thursday 7th September: Dragonflies of Central Scotland
Presented by Daniele Muir (Scotland Officer, British Dragonfly Society)

Voracious predators, able to detect movement up to 15 metres away and marvels of aerodynamic engineering, these animals are the raptors of the insect world.

Come along to find out which species can be found locally, what the British Dragonfly Society is doing to help conserve these species and how you can get involved.


Thursday 5th October: Foraging Ecology and Movement of Herring Gulls
Presented by Dr. Ruedi Nager (University of Glasgow)

Herring Gulls are going through some dramatic changes in terms of numbers and distribution. While numbers in many traditional sites decline, Herring Gulls increasingly use built-up areas both for breeding and foraging. Over the last few years we looked at the foraging decisions of Herring Gulls along the Scottish Southwest coast and its implications for their breeding success.


Thursday 2nd November: Froglife's Scottish Dragon Finders Project
Presented by Dr. Victoria Larcombe (Project Manager, Scotland’s Dragon Finder Project)

Froglife’s Scottish Dragon Finder project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, is entering its final year. The project was designed to reach out to people across Scotland and encourage them to get involved in reptile and amphibian conservation.

Come along to hear what we have achieved so far and find out what Froglife has planned for Scottish amphibians and reptiles in the future.


Thursday 7th December: Tag-n-Track
Presented by Hayley Douglas (Tag-n-Track Development Officer, Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park)

The Lesser Black-backed Gull is one of our most misunderstood birds. Using the latest in tracking technology 12 gulls have been tagged to investigate their summer and winter movements from the Clyde area.

Do they all forage for chips or are they more rural in their tastes? Do they overwinter in the UK or is Portugal more their scene?

Additional Dates: 07 December 2017

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paisley Natural History Society Illustrated Talks are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
