All African Bird Club members are invited to the launch of a new wildlife art gallery in Solva, Pembrokeshire (Wales, UK) on Tuesday 12th March 2019.  

This launch coincides with publication of a terrific new book "African Raptors: a field guide" by Bill Clark and Rob Davies. Bill did the words, Rob did the pictures.  There are 52 colour plates in all featuring all 106 species of diurnal African raptors including Eurasian migrants. There are 1200 figures and new range maps based on data in African Raptor Databank from mobile phones all over Africa.  Original plates will be on display and copies of the book, which is published by Bloomsbury in the Helm Identification Guide Series.  Some 300 colour photos too of all those tricky African raptors!

Please come along if you are able to.  The doors open at 5pm Tuesday 12thMarch and there will be refreshments and snacks.  

For directions to the gallery:  From Haverfordwest, drive up through Solva until you are about to leave the village for St Davids.  You will see a small wood on your left with a walled garden.  Turn left in here where you see signs for Llanunwas and follow the signs for Rookwood.  There is an overflow carpark in the farmyard if the gallery car park is full.
