The Complete Owl

Based on Michael’s best-selling book of the same name. This talk reveals resident British owls in folklore and fact; it looks at barn owls and tawny owls, little owls and cat owls, and the specialised techniques that help them hunt. Itdispels misleading myths and reveals the realities of an owl’s life. The talk is illustrated with dramatic high-speed photographs of owls in flight.

Michael sets aside part of each year for presentations, to date he has given talks in 11 countries. Michael has been described as ‘a unique wildlife humorist’ and has spoken at Arts Festivals, Theatres, Schools, Universities, Rotary Clubs, After Dinner events, Science Festivals and Lecture Societies. His talks are lively, informative and thought-provoking.

He is a recommended speaker for the RSPB and National Trust. In 1996 Michael gave his 1500th lecture, since then there have been simply too many to keep close count. The talks are illustrated with original images taken during his expeditions. The exact length and content of each talk can be tailored to fit individual requirements and a question-time is offered at the close.
