Professor TIM BIRKHEAD: University of Sheffield, author. Guillemots



Wednesday 18th October 2017

Tim will speak about his findings during 44 years of research on Skomer, when he studied guillemots closely. Some of that research informs his 2016 publishing success, ‘The Most Perfect Thing’, an informative and entertaining volume devoted to birds’ eggs.  Those familiar with his other writings, such as ‘Bird Sense’ and ‘Ten Thousand Birds’ will know that Tim has the knack of making the science very accessible.
