Location: International Convention Centre, Birmingham, United Kingdom
The Cornwall Chough Watch Team won the RSPB's President Award.
Me (Rowena Castillo Nicholls), Rob Nicholls and Mark Hayhurst went up to the International Convention Centre in Birmingham to received the RSPB's President Award in behalf of the Cornwall Chough Watch Team during the 125th Annual General Meeting of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds on 8th October 2016.
The award was presented to us by the RSPB President, Miranda Krestovnikoff.
Miranda Krestovnikoff is a British radio and television presenter specialising in natural history and archaeological programmes. She is also an accomplished musician, as well as a qualified scuba diver (which has led to co-presenting opportunities in programmes with an underwater element).
It’s a great pleasure to be part of the Cornwall Chough Watch Team since I moved to live in Cornwall in 2009. I felt so much at home being out there on the cliffs watching the Choughs on the North Cornwall Coast and on the Roseland Peninsula. And to be part of the team who won the RSPB’s President Award is just brilliant. It’s an honour to attend the 125th Annual General Meeting of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds at the International Convention Centre to received the award in behalf of the team. It’s a once in a lifetime experience. Something I will treasure for the rest of my life. Cheers to a wonderful year in the Chough World. Cheeeooowww…
