Thursday

Karen Lloyd: The Blackbird Diaries.

Karen Lloyd shares her deep-rooted knowledge and affection for the flora and fauna of the British Isles. The Blackbird Dairies is a celebration of landscapes that rarely feature in nature writing, but more than that, at a critical time of species loss, she offers rare insights into the lives of species on the edge, such as the curlew, and why golden eagles disappeared from the Lake District.

Karen will also discuss the project she recently initiated at Lancaster University; ‘Reimagining The Lake District Uplands,’ which investigates ideas of ‘cultural’ landscapes, and what the term means in a time of climate crisis.
