On Monday evening Barrie Cooper introduced fellow members to his passion for planet earth and its wildlife. In an impressively illustrated and thoroughly professional presentation we were introduced to the National Parks of Uganda, their diverse populations of animal and bird life and the winning photograph opportunities provided by local, expert guides. Barrie is an experienced leader of international wildlife trips and he is now planning to return to Uganda with a small group of clients in 2020. Interested members should get in touch with Barrie for further information. On Monday evening members were also invited to select their favourite colour and mono images from our last 2 competitions. The author of the image attracting the most member votes during the 2017/18 season will be awarded the newly introduced, ‘Members’ Choice’ trophy.
