Month: February 2015
Just a quick note to let everyone know that our Honorary President, Helen MacDonald will be appearing on Countryfile this Sunday, BBC1 at 7pm. “Ellie Harrison meets award-winning author Helen MacDonald and hears how Helen overcame personal grief through a love of goshawks and turned the experience into a literary smash.”
The programme should also appear here on iPlayer shortly afterwards.
The GRMG website opened on December 16th 2014. Yesterday marked the end of our first complete calendar month of accepting records of raptor sightings. We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to submit their records, and we very much hope that people will continue to do so. A total of 179 records were submitted in the month of January, with a total of 242 birds recorded across 14 species – not a bad start for a fledgling group! At the top of the list, perhaps unsurprisingly, was the Common Buzzard with 73 records, followed by the Kestrel with 52, and the Sparrowhawk with 14 records.
