Step up for Steppe Eagles!

Tomorrow would have been the Champions of the Flyway race day 2020. Sadly, Coronavirus has stopped this year's race, but I hope you will join the #FlywayFamily and celebrate our migrant birds wherever you are. Let's show solidarity to the cause bird from lockdown, or on your daily exercise walk  and tweet #COTF20. More about the day can be read on Mark Pearson's blog.

You can read more about this year's cause, stopping the catastrophic decline of Steppe Eagles, on the Champions of the Flyway website.

Meanwhile, two years ago, I was part of the Zeiss Yorkshire Terriers that won the Guardians of the Flyway trophy for most funds raised. It was an epic day, with some epic birds, including my first ever Blue-cheeked Bee-eater and Rufous Bush-chat. Absolutely amazing!
