Race around the Wildspace!

Despite strong winds and showery weather, four teams headed out early on May 11th, racing to count as many bird species as they could. A total of 71 species were found, lower than previous years, with poor weather hindering both bird migration and observation. Highlights included Cetti’s Warblers in a variety of spots around the site, Marsh Harriers, and a Hobby flying past the teams at the Sailing Club.
