Birdlife Panel

From the casual birder to the passionate ornithologist, there’ll be something for everyone as a panel of ardent bird lovers stop to ponder the inspiration offered by our feathered friends.

Chairing the discussion is Jacqueline Weir from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds,  along with: Tim Dee, radio producer and a lifelong birdwatcher who’s written books on birds including The Running Sky and The Poetry of Birds, Paul Farley, one of our greatest poets and also an avid bird spotter, and Tom McKinney, guitarist and BBC Radio 3 presenter including a programme called ‘Inspired By Birds’ for Radio 3 and a series of The Essay on Radio 3 about bird migration.
