|Training week: Team hard at work|
|Deep in tought...rangers Lana and David|
|Everything you need to know about the National Trust|
|Male Crossbill; one of a flock of 32 seen at Gibside (David Kinchin-smith)|
With a First Aid course to complete tomorrow, the team will be ready and on Friday morning we’ll (hopefully) be sailing to the islands…weather permitting. It’s been a good start with everyone settling in well and the base at Gibside has given us the chance to catch up with some of its stunning wildlife including up to Five Dippers, 32 Crossbills and several red Kites. The Farnes season has begun!
