On behalf of myself and the committee,  many thanks for a brilliant presentation last night. Delightful with all the bird song in the background and stunning photography.” Sevenoaks KWT

Thank you once again for your excellent talk last night. Everyone
commented on the high quality of your presentation and your knowledge
and enthusiasm for your subject. I will recommend you to anyone else who
is looking for a speaker!” Kemsing Guild

Simon Ginnaw gave us an excellent talk last Wednesday evening.   His digital presentation was accompanied by bird song which made us feel as if we were really walking the park through the seaons.  His personal anecdotes (starting age 3) and enthusiasm added greatly to the atmosphere of the evening.  The excellent quality of the photographs of the park through the seasons was accompanied at times by music where Simon left the audience to sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of this interesting park.Gravesend RSPB
