Why Amy Joined
Continuing our occasional series about why people joined Go Local and why it is important to them.
Amy joined GO Local Food about 4 years ago as a work share and since then has found herself involved in much else! She is currently a Director and our events coordinator, and is always on the lookout for help with events. Amy continues to enjoy just being on the fields too!.
Wild life on the Go Local Food Fields
A wealth of wildlife on and around Go Local Food – eventually a list of the birds seen and heard on the Go Local Food fields back when the dawn chorus walk was held:
Blackbird, Blackcap, Blue tit, Bullfinch, Carrion crow, Chaffinch, Chiff-chaff, Cockerel, Collared dove, Dunnock, Goldfinch, Great tit, Greenfinch, House sparrow, Magpie, Pied wagtail, Pheasant, Peacock, Robin, Starling, Swallow, Skylark, Sedge warbler, Song thrush, White throat, Wood pigeon, Wren
Even with the cockerel and the peacock known not to be on the fields but heard locally that is an impressive list. Makes the growing methods we use worthwhile to see and hear the richness of the wildlife.
