U3A Armadale


Today I volunteered some time to give one of my 'standard' Wedge-tailed Eagle talks at the meeting of University of the Third Age (U3A) group in Armadale. While talking at the Armadale Library last August, I was pleased to receive a letter from one of the group's members, Keith, kindly inviting me to present at a U3A meeting in 2018. The time went quickly and suddenly today had arrived!

With lots of fieldwork under my belt from the 2018 season there were many updates to share, especially from our recently satellite-tagged eagle Kwidi and her family, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting some new people and answering their questions. I also really enjoyed the cake and fruit offered for morning tea, and the nice bottle of wine I received as a thank-you for presenting! If you are interested in keeping your mind active, please visit the group's website for more information. Thanks to Keith for setting this occasion up, to all who attended for showing such interest in my research, and especially to Annie taking photos and for her very kind words about my work!
