Allan Goddard : Farm Liaison

Posted on Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

The GBG is pleased to announce that Allan Goddard, a retired arable farmer who jointly owns 1100 acres near Dorchester and has been volunteering with the GBG for the last nine months, has accepted a position as Farm Liaison.

Allan’s role will be to talk to other farmers and act as a bridge between the GBG and the wider farming community, a role that will become increasingly important as our young PTT-wearing birds disperse from the release-site. As a fellow-farmer Allan will be able to talk to other landowners and reassure them that having a bustard on their land will not necessarily impact on their everyday activities. This will undoubtedly increase the chances that valuable data on where the birds are spending their time when they leave the release-site will be made available to us.
