Presentations and Schedule

Our rolling programme of presentations begins at UTC 1200 on 28 November and runs through to UTC 1400 on 29 November with a packed programme from ornithologists right around the world. Topics include most avian research areas you can think of, and maybe some you haven’t thought of before. We very much hope you enjoy the fruits of over 70 ornithology researchers presenting their research.
