Urban Birding events with Notting Hill author and broadcaster, David Lindo

David Lindo
Notting Hill-based author and broadcaster David Lindo is holding two great urban birding events in West London this Friday and Saturday.
Friday will see him take part in the Friends of Wormholt Park Weekend, leading a Kid’s Bird Walk with local schoolchildren to show them birds, nesting sites, bugs, creepy-crawlies and more. Taking place from 1pm to 3pm this is an open event, so anyone is free to join!
On Saturday, Mr Lindo will be hosting a presentation and book signing at the Idler Academy on Westbourne Park Road, and also taking participants on a bird watching tour of Notting Hill. Tickets for this event cost £12.50 and can be purchased direct from the Idler Academy. Drinks and nibbles will be available.
David Lindo, a Notting Hill resident, has just recently published his first book, The Urban Birder. Mr Lindo regularly features on BBC1’s The One Show and contributes a column to every issue of BBC Wildlife, Bird Watching and the RSPB’s Birds. He also has a lively and informative website (and blog) on bird watching which has a very dedicated following.
The Urban Birder covers much of David Lindo’s experiences in bird-watching (and more besides), from seeing Greylag Geese and Common Buzzards by Wormwood Scrubs, to being threatened by air-rifle toting youths and criminals, to his work on the Tower 24 project for Peregrine falcons to roost in. There is plenty for both keen bird-watchers and others amongst the adventures that Mr Lindo recaps in his book – humorous, surreal and bizarre – so do make sure to pick up a copy!
