Author and academic Tim Birkhead to speak at club’s 2020 AGM


Cancelled: The Lincolnshire Bird Club AGM 24th March 2020

The LBC committee have taken the decision to cancel our AGM on 24th March 2020 because of concerns around Coronavirus. We will look to rearrange for September subject to Tim Birkhead’s availability and the developing outlook of the pandemic.

TIM Birkhead has agreed to be the guest speaker at the LBC's 24th March 2020  annual meeting.

Until his recent retirement, Tim had been Professor of Behaviour and Evolution at Sheffield University since 1976.

He has always combined his enthusiasm for research with a passion for undergraduate teaching.

He has taught courses on ecology, evolution, statistics, birds, behavioural ecology, animal behaviour and the history and philosophy of science.

An authority on guillemots, specifically those that nest on Skomer Island,  his data on the species has yielded important insights on the impact of climate change, integrity of habitat, warmer oceans and food supplies.

Tim  is the author of numerous, award-winning books including The Wisdom of Birds: An Illustrated History of Ornithology.

The club's annual meeting will be at 7.30pm on March 24 at The Golf Hotel in Woodhall Spa.

An update on his guillemot research project is at
