After a two-year break, this group will relaunch at the Coral Star restaurant on Thursday 30 September. 
In a talk entitled "These are a few of My Favourite Things", Ros will share photos and information about many interesting animal species found in Cyprus. 
David and Ros Sparrow have spent 20 years studying and photographing the fauna of Cyprus and have worked closely with expert scientists on many animal orders.
They have produced two books: "The Amphibians and Reptiles of Cyprus" and "The Wildlife of Cyprus" which brought together 44 expert authors. 
The group also benefits from members with extensive botanical knowledge: on field trips we always learn about many plants.  
Ros and David are glad to help with photo IDs or other questions regarding species found in Cyprus.
