The site had its annual visit from the David Bellamy Award assessors today. Our assessment was carried out by Mary Combe of the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG). . . . Mary joined Cornwall FWAG as a Farm Conservation Adviser in June 1990. Brought up on a small dairy farm on The Lizard Peninsula which then progressed through beef rearing to early potato and flower production Mary brings a wealth of practical experience to FWAG and the Bellamy Award Scheme. Alongside the farm she was also involved in running a small hotel business during the 1970’s and early 1980’s. . Mary is a member of IAgrE, Institute of Agricultural Engineers, and keeps up to date by attending many of the courses on a wide range of subjects that are available to FWAG staff. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, walking, making cards and jewellery, and spending time with her family. . . One thing Mary did point out was that the bird nest photographed in an earlier post was not of a wren. She thought it belonged to possibly a chaffinch, robin or dunnock. As we have all three of those birds in abundance at Lower Treave, we need an expert out there who can give us a definitive view! . Lower Treave holds the David Bellamy Conservation Award Gold for 2008. Awards for 2009 will be announced in October. . . . .
