The weather didn't encourage crowds but sometimes it's a case of quality over quantity. Pictured here is Fred Few, one of the many RSPB volunteers from the field book is dedicated to. Tomorrow is the second anniversary of his wife, Pat Few. I have very fond memories of Pat arriving at the RDC on her bicycle and helping me take parties of school children mud dipping and minibeast hunting. A wonderful lady and very much missed.
Also pictured are more of the team: Andy, Ruth (RDC manager) and Muriel.
I was also really pleased to welcome Carol Fenlon. Her new novel, Consider the Lilies, is being launched next week. Good luck Carol.
