It was great to be back at Birdfair after a two year absence. Thanks goes to the Hawk and Owl Trust for gathering together many of the groups from around the country as part of the newly launched Peregrine Network ; we wish this collaborative network of like minded souls all the very best in the near future. SWP were lucky enough to join the team on the Sunday where we met up with friends from Scotland Raptor Study Group, Sheffield Peregrines and Norwich Peregrines. Zoe Smith, the network lead co-ordinator did a fantastic job ensuring we all had the best of times, meeting and greeting the general public. Much interest was shown in the work being carried out by the teams from around the country. Many people seeing Peregrines on the coast for the very first time, thanks to some fantastic video, put together by team member Luke Curno.
Birdfair is certainly the Glastonbury of the birding world. One big family for those three days in August. We hope to be back again next year. It was great to see you all again.
