From buzzards to hen harriers, Staffordshire’s leading conservation charity is giving people the chance to learn more about the different types of raptors spotted across Britain.

The event, which takes place at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust’s Wolseley Centre headquarters, between Stone and Rugeley, will help people understand about the different raptor species found across the country and how they differ in both appearance and behaviour.

The Trust has joined forced with Jimmi Hill from Raptor Aid to host the day, which takes place on Sunday 23rd October between 9am and 5pm.

Jimmi said:

“Birds of prey around the world have interested us for a long time, whether it was through religion, society or literature.


“In the modern day, birds of prey, like many other species have felt the pressure on their survival. So giving people the chance to learn more about them is important.

“The event at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust will hopefully do that, and I’ll be on hand to answer any questions people might have about raptors, too.”

Refreshments will be provided for those attending, but people should also bring a packed lunch.

The cost to attend the event is £30 and can be booked by calling 01889 880100 or email marketing@staffs-wildlife.org.uk for further information.
