Hooded Plover: another successful Wader Quest project completed, Thank you!

Today we sent £1,128.50 to the bank account of BirdLife Australia to assist with Hooded Plover protection as part of their beach nesting birds programme.

We received an email from Grainne Maguire, our friend and the project manager, who some of you may have heard on the BBC R4 Shared Planet programme yesterday, about how the money will be used:

"Thank you so much for all your hard work at fundraising, I will make sure that we use this money directly on getting some equipment to protect the hoodies – we've just been out to some new areas that are keen for involvement and they have no materials and we had no funds to help, but we can definitely help these groups get set up now and spread all the good things happening on the coast for the birds."

This is gratifying news indeed, not just for us but for everyone who took the time and trouble to donate to this very worthy cause.

This is what our contribution looks like in hard cash!

We are of course very proud to have now successfully completed two projects but we are, at the same time, acutely aware that we did not do this alone. So, to those of you who have helped whether by buying our pins, earrings, models etc. or allowing us to come and talk to your group or, especially, to those who have donated or become sponsors, we say a very big thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.
