2020 Birdathon Reports!

Print Email

The 2020 Wallace Memorial Birdathon was a huge success, with the number of sponsors, dollars raised, and total species observed all reaching new highs. Our members and other sponsors responded enthusiastically to our message that this might be our only major fund-raiser this year because of COVID-19 restrictions, and our sponsorships totalled just over $5650. We are most grateful for your generous support, as it will make up for some of the income we cannot expect this year. Although our Stewardship activities will be somewhat reduced, we will be able to carry on with most of them...

The Birdathon clearly demonstrates just how many birds can be found by skilled birders on our Nature Reserves: the cumulative species total now stands at 161. This year alone our birders recorded 131 species, and the winner of the contest to guess this number was Russ Lake (his guess was exactly correct), a member of NLT since its inception and a former Pelton Steward - CONGRATULATIONS, Russ! Honourable mentions go to founding NLT Board member Audrey Wilson and former winner Martha Oldham, who guessed 132 and 130 respectively. The reports from each property can be found below...
