Monday 16 November – 6.30 pm – the BOC’s 1000th meeting!  (See below).

The talk scheduled for 16 November, which again had been planned in conjunction with the Linnean Society and at their premises, is intended to be by Professor John Fjeldså, University of Copenhagen, on the subject of the evolution of passerine birds. This talk had been designed to celebrate the 1,000th evening meeting of the BOC but, should it go ahead, will now be slightly ahead of the anniversary given the forced cancellation of previous 2020 meetings! At present, we remain very hopeful that this event will still occur on schedule, but it is clearly too early to state anything definitively so please keep checking this website for updates.

As previously announced and owing to the Corvid-19 pandemic, the 2020 meetings programme has had to be substantially adjusted. The current situation is that Professor Diamond’s talk, in conjunction with the Linnean Society has been deferred, subject to his availability, until a date in 2021.
