This is fascinating stuff! Still feel excited that I was on Fair Isle at the time this tracking was initially done last summer.

Spurn Point bathing in spring sunlight, taken yesterday by . Still very much worth the walk down, as exemplified by the inimitable Jump twins, who yesterday had a Firecrest, Red-rumped Swallow, Glaucous Gull & the first Whinchat and Grasshopper Warbler of the year

Massive respect to and all their staff , volunteers and supporters . From zero to a real force in contemporary conservation in just a few years . Putting some of the bigger NGO’s in the shameful shade . Keep it up - we are with you !

I've been across some dodgy roads and tracks among the highest mountain ranges in the world but wouldn't fancy a trip down Spurn in this. The school kids looked happy so it must be OK ?

Please watch this . A dead Golden Eagle drives around Edinburgh and then throws itself into the North Sea . Nothing suspicious about that is there ? Nothing at all . . . Just in case there was any foul play please sign this petition

Hi I hear you’re coming to the EU parliament as well today... would be lovely to see you at the round table discussion on spring hunting which is speaking at around 12.20 Rm PHS 1C51. If not, fancy lunch to discuss how we can save our birds?!
