Francis Willughby lived in the midst of the scientifc revolution of the 17th century, travelling with his Cambridge tutor, John Ray.
Before their frst book, Ornithology, could be completed, Willughby died and his legacy was obscured by his collaborator’s growing reputation.
In this beautifully illustrated talk, fellow expert Tim Birkhead celebrates Willughby’s life and work, which set a new standard for the way birds and natural history should be studied.
