Mr Buck, from Bristol, trains birds for film and television, including BBC TV's Springwatch and Autumnwatch. He became a household name after showing his tame starlings on television, and allowing them to fly amongst and occasionally land on members of the audience. He also trained the greylag geese which flew alongside a boat carrying David Attenborough in Goose Chase.

Mr Buck will be giving a talk illustrated with clips from his programmes, flying a tame starling and barn owl during his talk, and will also show (but not fly) a raven, golden eagle, peregrine falcon and gyrfalcon.

Tickets for the event, at the college conference centre, are available from Sculthorpe Moor reserve, Turf Moor Road, Sculthorpe, NR21 9GN at £15 (children half price) or by calling 01328 856788.
