Colin McShane will give an illustrated talk on The Water Birds of Belvide Reservoir one of the West Midland Bird Club reserves. Despite Belvide being far inland it attracts a number of sea birds. Colin is well known locally as an excellent and very knowledgeable speaker.  We should be in for a treat.

Far from the Western Front. Our local raconteur, Richard Field, recently travelled to Gallipoli to research the involvement of the Allied troops there during WW1, 100 years ago. The Gallipoli campaign at first a naval and then a military operation failed to break through the Dardanelles and by 1916 the Allies had to withdraw.
