  1. Dear Mr Wyatt,

    I am responsible for organizing indoor meetings for our local north west Surrey rspb group and I am hoping that you will be able to talk to our group on the birds of ancient Egypt. We meet in Weybridge on the fourth Wednesday of the month and I am looking for a speaker for either the 24 November 2016 or 25 January 2017. Our talks are generally illustrated PowerPoint presentations and last for 90 minutes with an interval and brief questions at the end. We normally have about 60 ,members attending. Do let me know if you are able to come and if so your fee.

    With kind regards,

    Ken Sutton

  2. Dear Dr. Wyatt,
    Please, may I friendly ask Your help
    Past week I received an E-mail of Prof Dr. Rogacheva, a famous and distinguished ornithologist in Russia, writer of the famous Handbook. “Birds of Central Siberia”. Now she is very aged (above 80 years old).
    I am also an ornithoogist, doctor in Veterinary medicine (Ghent,Belgium, 1965), student of Russian wild geese, wineting in The Neterlands.
    Prof. Rogacheva requests some informations about the pictures of Branta ruficollis which appeared in the hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt.
    Who was the detector of these pictures and where were these pictures found.? Do You know their age?
    As an ornithologist, do You think that these Red-beasted Geese really visited Eqypt in historical times? Maybe they were copies from geese, observed elsewhere, in ancient Greece?
    Prof Rogacheva is very interested in these questions, because she is preparing a book of “The Birds of Taymir”, Within the Taimyr Peninsula, Branta ruficollis is breeding.
    I looked at Internet and found in the work “Between Heaven and Earth: Birds in Ancient Egypt an incomplete picture of that bird on p. 87. Alone the belly and the legs are visible. However, concerning my question, I search information about the whole picture of Branta ruficollis, who appeared on the the hieroglyphs.
    Dear Dr. Wyatt, I thank You very much in anticipation for Your answer.

  4. Mr. Wyatt, are you the same John Wyatt who lives or used to live in Tring, Herts, and had a telephone number ending in “693”? Did you take a group birdwatching on the north Belgian and Dutch coasts in the late 1990’s or very early 2000’s which included me? Please let me know.
