I was delighted to be invited to exhibit at the Surrey Hills Wood Fair in Cranleigh, a 2 day event celebrating the Surrey Hills and all it has to offer, plus all things wood! This had a footfall of around 6000 visitors, our biggest event yet.
We spent both days there providing a static display of British native wildlife ambassadors, showing all the visitors the wonderful wildlife that the Surrey Hills has to offer. Many people had never seen these creatures before, so it was really special to provide them with the unique opportunity to see some of the rarest and most secretive wildlife of Britain up close.
This opened up the all important conversation about the status of wildlife in the UK and the unfortunate decline in the wild of all species we had present, explaining what we can do to help them and how we can get involved in their conservation. We were non stop, busy all day from start until finish.
Bob the new kestrel did amazingly well, he was steady as anything and hadn't a care in the world, taking everything in his stride. He spent the 2 days preening, rousing and showing so many signs of being fully comfortable and content with his surroundings. Well done Bob, he's a superstar.
Thank you so much for inviting us, what a fantastic 2 days!
