  1. What a great evening! Rik delivered a forthright, knowledgeable and amusing talk regarding a subject close to his heart. Accompanied by some really good photos from Elis, this was a special event. Their enthusiasm was boundless and should be seen by all.

  2. Rik has a huge wealth of knowledge of all things waders and his talk on lapwings, plovers and dotterels was entertaining and informative. I particularly liked the different collective nouns used for different species:
    a deceit of lapwings
    a congregation of golden plovers
    a wing of ring plovers
    a range of mountain plovers
    My favourite was his suggestion for the swirling flocks of waders as they flash between black and silver – an inspiration of waders
    We witnessed this spectacle ourselves when we visited RSPB Cliffe Pools in January
