Ranger Robyn Staddon and I met with Ernie Almond today to make a brief radio broadcast for Black Cat Radio. It turned out to be anything but brief as we had so much to talk about on a lovely afternoon.
We met at the open hide that (for obvious reasons) we call the "bus-shelter".The birds distracted us several times as we tried to cover the story of the Reserve's first 30 years, the wildlife, the visitors, our Friends group, environmental education and of course, our volunteers.
