Quiz Results and an Enjoyable Visit

Monday, August 21st 2017

This morning we hosted a visit from the Wetherby U3A Wildlife Group, giving them a brief talk about the reserve and then a guided walk. Many of them had decided to make a full day of it, bringing a picnic lunch and continuing to explore the reserve in the afternoon.

They told us it was a ‘very enjoyable visit’. Quite a bit of excitement was generated by repeat sightings of great spotted woodpeckers! Do get in touch if you would like to arrange a similar hosted visit for your group.

Many thanks to all those who supported us once again by buying a copy of the quiz. We are still aware that there are friends who do not send in their answers because they feel they have failed, not having answered all the questions. The results you see are of those who returned their efforts to us, and I hope are encouraged by their success!
Congratulations Trish! Your name was drawn out of the hat as one of the ’25’ group.
Thanks to you also, Pat, for compiling the quiz again.
