Bewick's Swan in the collection
Back to work today, doing some tree work at the London Wetland Centre. It was colder than in Romania and better views of the sought after geese (in the collection) - 30 mins from home.
Good to see the centre so busy with birders, meetings and school visits even on a freezing winters day. We've got the the pre-feasibility study for a Beddington Farmlands centre which is due to be completed by the end of March. Various groups are being consulted including the WWT. Beddington is a larger site (4 x the size), with established habitats etc within a diverse demographic and social environment so will provide different opportunities and exciting possibilities.
