Peter Davis makes it onto University Challenge!

 Last night I was surprised to hear the name of our late, great, ornithologist Peter Davis come up in one of the questions.  

Your starter for 10:  Which large bird of prey with a forked tail was he instrumental in saving.?

                                  When on Lundy as warden he found the first ever American Robin. To which family of birds does it belong?

                                     Name the island between Shetland and Orkney where he found another 3 birds which had not been recorded before in Britain.

One of the clever clogs got the answers!
