DEREK NIEMANN – BIRD IN A CAGE
About the event
Soon after his arrival at Warburg PoW camp, British army officer John Buxton found an unexpected means of escape from the horrors of internment, passing his days covertly watching birds. Peter Conder, also a passionate ornithologist, had noticed Buxton gazing skywards and, along with two other prisoners, they founded a birdwatching society. In Birds in a Cage, Derek Niemann tells the remarkable story of how four PoWs were forged by their wartime experience into the giants of post-war wildlife conservation. Their legacy lives on in institutions such as the RSPB and the British Wildlife Trust.
