Life Goes On

The air of depression that descended on me after Faith's death has lifted somewhat, with the arrival of 7 new ducklings on the river. 

I also have faith's 7 ducklings to worry about, and how best to rear them successfully. 
I have also been cheered up by Woody who turns up daily and comes into the kitchen for his sunflower seeds and lettuce, he is starting to develop the white neck flash which apparently appears at 6 months.



 Para the paraplegic pigeon also turns up daily along with 2 other pigeons that I rescued over the past year, it reminds me that not all my rescue attempts are failure's.
Our half yearly Trust meeting will be held later this week, and we will pick the winners of the wildlife photo competition, among other items to be discussed.

The Trust meeting is for Trustees only, and any person invited by the trustees who has specialist knowledge or expertise in a particular field.

Well Anon, we are a voluntary unpaid group of individuals who wish to care for and protect the Tidal reaches of the River Nairn and it's Waterfowl.
This means looking out for their welfare, environment, and habitat.
Membership does not give any voting rights, but any member can contact any of the trustees at any time with ideas and suggestions if they so desire. The annual fee is used exclusively for the benefit and care of the wildlife, and no payment is made to any trustee or member of the Trust.
