Mark Cocker at Fisher Theatre

On Monday November 19th 2012, a joint event with Waveney Bird Club at Bungay saw a full house with noted author and naturalist Mark Cocker giving an excellent and informative talk on two of his books; before the interval on Crow Country, published in 2007 and his forthcoming Birds and People, to be published in 2013. The latter a result of several years collection and documentation of the cultural significance of birds from around the world and of the many ways birds are part of human lives.

A successful evening with proceeds going to the Farmland Research Project, a prize raffle by WBC and a selection of Mark’s book available to purchase. Look out for further joint events in 2013 between the two organisations.
