CONGRATULATIONS to our wonderful ALFORD Wildlife Watch Group who were HIGHLY COMMENDED in the national Watch Group of the Year Awards 2016! The judges loved their varied and interesting programme and how involved the members were in all the activities. Here they are, after a cold February's meeting making bird boxes. Well done, everybody!
Don't forget all our Watch Groups have regular meetings where we get up to all sorts of wildlife fun! Look up the programme of your nearest Watch Group, and also check out the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust main website for events for all the family:
