Two male ring ouzels were back up on the moor on the east side on 21 March. Always a pleasure to see the first ones return from winter migration. We are very lucky to still have this upland bird which is in serious decline in the UK. Updale Natural History Recorder
Craig and Helen hosted a fund raising cheese and wine party at the Abbey Stores on Friday evening in aid of Hospices UK. Enjoyable wines and cheeses from around the world and a very tempting raffle helped raise the magnificent total of £810.50.
Helen and Nicola have set themselves a target of £4500 and are planning a number of other fund raising events in the next twelvemonth, including an arduous Arctic challenge in January 2020 when they will travel to northern Finland to take part in snowshoe treks, cross-country skiing and dog sledding, all in expected minus 30c temperatures!
