Isle of Wight Waterfowl Awareness Course and Advanced Training Day

Trevor Weeks giving a presentationThe morning lecture has been given by Trevor Weeks. Trevor gave a very interesting and entertaining talk about waterfowl rescue and looking at common problems involving waterfowl at park ponds, rivers and lakes. In the afternoon our BDMLR Marine Mammal Medics undertook an indoor desktop stranding exercise and simulated dolphin pontoon rescue under supervision of Assistant Area Coordinator and Marine Mammal Medic Nigel Dove. Kerstin Voigt and her son Julian organised a cake sale of delicious home made cakes and raised a fantastic £100 with the total being shared by both charities BDMLR and WRAS.
