The days I spend meeting so many people, listening to their stories and visiting each of the stands. I am next door to the Overseas RSPB workers and their albatross campaign results are stunning. Over 90% reduction in albatross deaths due to long-line fishing, some way still to go but what a successful result.

Then there's the wildlife crime stand with booklets on the facts and figures of the appalling destruction of too many birds, particularly birds of prey.
A change of mood with first the ladies of the York Local RSPB Group who greet everyone with such friendliness and enthusiasm.
Then more of a challenge with placing various archeaological artefacts in chronological order. Have a look at the photograph and if you can see the letters on each piece see if you agree with the order that I placed them in. (G H B A E D C F). I will post the answer later on today.
Thanks to the York Archaeological Trust for the fun.
For the children there was the fantastic Wildfowl Explorers table . .
and it all culminated with a visit to my table of the CEO Mike Clarke!
