This weekend I volunteered at Hickling for the Wildlife Watch’s Raptor Roost event which was led by Isabelle – she was a great organiser! I helped out with putting the clipboards together and asking if people would consent to having their photo taken so they could be used on the NWT website.
There were around 20 children there who were each given their own little recycled pot so they could collect leaves and twigs or blades of grass to make a mini picture. I also took lots of good pictures for the NWT website.
Jeremy, another volunteer, was very knowledgeable about all the birds we saw when we got to the Raptor Roost. We saw lots of cranes and marsh harriers and near the end we saw a hen harrier. Then we walked back to the education hut where I made hot chocolate for everybody and handed out the biscuits. Once everybody had left, I washed up the cups.
It was so much fun! I can’t wait to volunteer again.
