Wildlife in winter – from the comfort of your living room

​​​The University of Gloucestershire has issued an open invitation to its next Living Room Lecture, which will take a look at wildlife in winter. The lecture, at 1pm on Wednesday 2 December, will tempt us to go outside and appreciate the winter wildlife.

The speaker, Professor Anne Goodenough of the University of Gloucestershire, has broad teaching and research interests, from the nesting ecology of birds to the role of citizen science, and the study of Starling Murmurations.

Professor Goodenough said:

“Winter can sometimes seem a quiet time in the natural world but if you know where to go, and what to look out for, there are some amazing wildlife opportunities. Watching deer rutting, seeing new-born seal pups, finding new winter-visiting birds, seeking out overwintering butterflies, exploring the wonders of the world of fungi, and even simply taking the time to appreciate the majesty of bare trees – winter can be a truly rewarding time to watch wildlife”.

Living Room Lectures are streamed live on the University’s Facebook page​. There is no need to book and they are free to join. Professor Goodenough will answer questions from the audience; just submit them during the lecture.
