The Reintroduction of the Great Bustard

Lynne Derry

The Great Bustard Group are reintroducing the heaviest flying bird in the world back to the UK after it became extinct from these shores in the mid 1800’s, due mainly to hunting. As with any reintroduction there have been lows but some pretty spectacular highs too. Lynne Derry will take us through the history of this magical bird in Wiltshire and the Salisbury Plain. This is a fascinating update on its progress.
