From missing links between dinosaurs and birds and the fabrication of whole ornithological expeditions to birds who use deceit, mimicry and imitation, there is no shortage of examples of fraud in the bird world. This will be a fascinating afternoon for anyone interested in either birding or fakery! A Talk by Nik Borrow, Saturday 9 October 2010 at 2pm, Hastings Museum & Art Gallery. Tickets: £3 to include tea & cakes. Free to members of Hastings & St Leonards Museum Association. Available from Museum Reception or telephone 01424 451052

These birds are doing very well in the RX area. A fantastic peak count of 53 birds was recorded going in to roost last winter, and Kent now holds a significant proportion of the UK population of these birds. Individuals in North Kent have been wing tagged to learn more about their behaviour and movements. Should you happen to see any marked marsh harriers please report them to firstname.lastname@example.org noting the colours of the tag on each wing and the number on it if possible.
