Thursday 26th May
Author Tom Bowser – Talk and Q&A
Dunblane Library, 19:00-20:00pm
Red kites were once Britain’s most common bird of prey. By the early 1900s they’d been wiped out in Scotland and England following centuries of ruthless persecution. Author Tom Bowser is here to share the story of how reintroduced red kites began roosting on their 1,400-acre farm at Argaty in Perthshire, and how the estate became a haven for this vulnerable species.
Tom Bowser grew up on his parents’ Perthshire farm. After university he worked as a teacher and then as a journalist before returning to Argaty in 2009. In 2017 he took over the running of the conservation project Argaty Red Kites, and in 2018 launched the Argaty Red Squirrels project.
