An introduction to some of the best places around the UK for seabirds and cetaceans. Carl takes us from Kent up the east coast through Suffolk and Norfolk. Spurn Point in Yorkshire and The Farne Islands in Northumberland. Further North into Scotland we encounter the largest group of inshore Bottlenose Dolphins within the UK. The Western Isles are a treat for anyone interested in cetaceans as is the coast of Wales. Nobody can exclude the Isles of Scilly for both excellent birds, whales and dolphins. 

This talk will be a joint event with the Marylebone Birdwatching Society.
