On Friday, August 17 at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery - Mick Brown will be giving a fascinating insight into one of the UK’s most recognisable seabirds in his talk The Private Life of the Gannet.

Mick has been working on small expedition ships in the Arctic and Antarctica for the past 18 years.

For over 40 years, Mick has been associated with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Parks, spending time on the island nature reserves of Skomer, Skokholm, Ramsey, Grassholm and St Margaret’s Island.

His knowledge about the natural environment and its flora and fauna has been the subject of many popular talks over the years and this one will be no exception.

The gannet is a magnificent seabird, diving at high speed to catch their fish suppers of mackerel and herring. Between March and September Britain is home to nearly 7 per cent of the world’s breeding gannet population.

If you would like to find out more about the life of this seabird, then book a ticket for Mick’s talk, which starts at 7 pm.

Tickets are £5 (£4 if you are a member of the Friends of Tenby Museum) and can be booked through the museum (01834 842809 or by email [email protected])
