HRH The Prince Of Wales visits Project
The Prince of Wales visited the Great Bustard group today and was able to see a drove of 12 male Great Bustards feeding out on the edge of Salisbury Plain. He then went to the GBG viewing hide and chatted to GBG staff and supporters while he watched another male Great Bustard and a female.
The Prince of Wales has long had an interest in the project and was very keen to learn the details of the project and of the recent successes.
For the GBG the visit was a great honour and one that the project staff and volunteers enjoyed immensely.
The GBG is very grateful to the Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, Mrs. Peter Troughton and her staff, and the Commandant of Salisbury Plain Training Area Lt Col Stew Andrews for their assistance in hosting the visit.
