Hi all
On Friday Prue's workmate Michael Wright told her about a strange waterbird carcasse he had seen in Haig Park, Turner. As Prue had a mudmap of the location from Michael we stopped on our way to the woodland bird seminar this afternoon, and were rather astonished to find the mangled remains of a Great Crested Grebe. The head was intact (sort of) and the very distinctive lobed feet were still attached to the body, but the rest was a nasty, chewed mess, so we left it where we found it. Presumably it had flown into something while on its way to who knows where.
Like Geoffrey I thought the woodland seminar was a great success, well done to all involved.
