David Waters, GBG Director, was pleased to show Ashley Fox MEP around the release-site this morning. Bristol-based Mr Fox was elected to the European Parliament in June 2009 as the Conservative Party MEP for the South West of England and Gibraltar, and sits on a number of committees as well as being a member of the Delegation for relations with China (where most of the world’s eastern Great Bustards are found of course).
David and his guest visited the hide and saw 3 Great Bustards (two females and the chick). Ashley was also keen to learn of the progress of the project – and of the paperwork and funding challenges.
