An extended conversation with Keith Betton – former Head of corporate affairs at the Association of British Travel Agents, the youngest ever president of the London Natural History Society, former Council member of the RSPB, former chair of the Ornithological Society of the Middle East, current bird recorder for Hampshire, current council member of the BTO, and current Chair of The African Bird Club (ABC). On top of all that, is he also any good at persuading an impecunious podcaster to join the African Bird Club…?
With just over 1200 members the ABC provides information about Africa and supports conservation across the continent. To quote the Chair, the Club is “the place where birders come who love Africa” and through its website and magazines provides a huge resource of images, papers, checklists, and sound-recordings to anyone interested in Africa and its 2500+ species of birds.
