by way of Thank You!
… a personal and quite unofficial THANKS to all who came and took part in the Flamborough Bird Observatory AGM and evening events on Saturday Night. I just really enjoy being a part of all that’s going on. Great community, great birding! There was an excellent turn out. Always a joy to encounter Ian (DIM) Wallace- and I got to put on the legendary ‘Tam o’ shanter/ Balmoral Bonnet’ :).
The AGM brought grateful thanks for lots of hard work and so many advances over the year- new website, new twitter account, new recording system with BTO’s Birdtrack, rare and scarce bird assessment, fantastic conservation work, new partnerships and vision vision vision for the future.
To have folk like Anthony Hurd of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Living Seas Centre and Keith Clarkson of RSPB Bempton reporting so enthusiastically on their new centres and our working together over Flamborough Headland, to the benefit of all the wildlife– bloomin’ marvellous!
So for this who came to my wee talk, and who now know a little of the new ‘Redpoll Code’- you should have no problem identifying these two. I subject- taken at previous Gullfests in Arctic Norway 😉
