26 Jul (Fri): Talk on "Bird Illustration and Optics for Birding"

for Nature Society (Singapore) members only

Our first speaker is Alan Pearson, the illustrator for “A Field Guide to the Birds of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore” by A Jeyarajasingam. Alan has been birdwatching for more than 35 years and illustrating bird books and magazine articles for over 30 years. His talk will reveal how a field guide is put together, and will also cover bird illustration in general. He will go on to introduce birdwatching in England where he is based, and suggest how to plan a birding trip there.

The second topic, presented by Mathieu Musnier from Leica Camera Asia Pacific, is on choosing the right optical equipment to enhance birdwatching and nature observation. He will also introduce Leica sport optics products as precision crafted masterpieces and how to select the right equipment for your unique viewing needs.
