Lindsey has been volunteering for the project for the past month and we are sorry to see her leave. Lindsey ws one of the team of 'seabird task force volunteers' last winter, so it was great to have her back.

Lindsey has assisted in many parts of the project through September and October from 'Date with Nature' walks, analysis of the pitfall contents over 'pitfall week', data entry, 'rat on a rat incursions responses', delivering 'shrew dropping' crib sheets to the community (!), community talks, education sessions and beach cleans - phew - what a month! Thanks for working so hard Lindsey and come back anytime!
