Nairn Ceilidh Group - A Big Thank You !

The River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust are honoured and very grateful to receive a generous Donation of £200 this evening from  The Nairn Ceilidh Group . The Group do very charitable fund raising, and  give out thousands of pounds annually to Charities and good causes. This is a very welcome financial boost, and will be used for the welfare and benefit of the River Waterfowl to be enjoyed by the whole community. The Trust look after the welfare and Environment of the 150 birds that currently reside on the Tidal reaches of the River Nairn. This includes supplying approx 3 tons of Grain and feed over the course of a year. In addition to this, we attend to any veterinary needs as required, and deal with injuries and the Scottish SPCA as the need arises. There has been in excess of 25 rescues this season ranging from Swans with hooks and line, to injured ducks pigeons and seagulls. 
This year has been a great success for the waterbirds due to the exceptional summer weather, with 45 new ducklings surviving and of course the entire Swan family of 11.

The cost to the voluntary Trust, is in the region of £1800 a year from donations and membership fees. The Trust is voluntary and no payments are made to any of the Trustees. We can assure the Nairn Ceilidh Group that all of their kind donation will be spent on the welfare of the River wildlife, to be enjoyed by all the Residents and visitors to Nairn.
