Peter Steyn (1955O): Kingdom of Daylight: Memories of a Birdwatcher

Featured

Arts & Culture
On Thursday 26 October, Peter Steyn held a launch of his new book Kingdom of Daylight: Memories of a Birdwatcher, at Kalk Bay Books. The launch consisted of a conversation with Vernon Head (1984O), who has himself produced books relating to ornithology himself.
 
An advert to the event read:
“Steyn’s passion for birds began at an early age and saw him develop into both an expert bird photographer and an author of nine books and numerous popular and scientific articles on the subject.
His published research on birds of prey has been widely acclaimed. He has received the prestigious Gil Memorial Medal ‘for an outstanding lifetime contribution to the knowledge of southern African birds; and the Steven Piper Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to raptor conservation and research.”

Thank you to Peter for donating a copy of his book to the ODU.
We are currently working on an event featuring these two authors in the new year.
