Russian visit to WWT Slimbridge, UK

Eugene and Yulia surprise Sacha

Eugene and Yulia surprise Sacha

As part of the final Flight of the Swans celebration event at WWT Slimbridge, UK, our Russian partners Eugene and Yulia from Baltic Fund for Nature, came to help us celebrate this epic initiative.  Despite delays caused by heavy fog at Gatwick Airport, they managed to make it to the event in time to surprise Sacha (see left!).  Whilst they were here, we also had meetings with the swan monitoring unit and carried out some post-event evaluation, to assess how useful the Flight of the Swans events at Olenets, Rakovie lakes and had been.
