Our First Open Day

We were blessed with fine weather for our first open day yesterday. 14 volunteers turned up very early to erect two marquees and set out the stalls. We had a good footfall all day. There was lots of food and also guided walks and practical activities for our next generations of Wildlife Volunteers.

A brilliant job done by everyone involved, well done.

We make a start


                                    Nearly there

The second marquee is easier now we know the basics.

The books, pictures and craft area is organised

Plenty food and drink was available. Most of this was home made and delicious.

We had visitors all day. The children had bird drawing lessons given by Steve. Simon and Colin showed how to make fat balls for the bird feeders.

Above several big skeins of Pink Footed goose flew east.

Steve collected several mushrooms. A drawing of a Kingfisher in the background.

Excellent! A great effort - we really enjoyed it and managed to see a Greater Spotted Woodpecker too. Thank you! We will be back!

Glad it all went well for you, sorry I couldn't be there as I have to work on Saturdays.

Thanks to Graham, Robin and all the others who helped with the day in whatever large or small way they could. It all added up to a great day.
The baking was especially welcome!
