In a rare visit to the UK, Floyd Scholz, one of America’s most renowned bird carvers, will give an entertaining, illustrated talk about his experiences in creating his renowned sculptures of these majestic birds of prey.

Join Floyd as he presents a highly amusing and enjoyable behind-the-scenes look at the life and challenges of a professional bird carver. Follow along as he shares anecdotes of his 45 years of observing and carving these beautiful creatures. Through a combination of video and humorous narration he describes in engaging detail the process of transforming an ordinary block of tupelo wood into a sculpture worth a quarter of a million dollars.

Floyd’s talk will be accompanied by an illustrated talk by local bird expert Mike Ilett, who will present information about our local birds of prey in Hertfordshire. Mike, co-author of recently published book, Birds of Hertfordshire, will cover the range of raptor species commonly present in the county, along with the occasional visitors that excite much interest.

All proceeds raised from the sale of tickets will be divided between the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust and the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
