The wet weather appeared not to dampen the spirits of our visitors at the GWCT stand at Moy Highland Field Sports Fair 2016. Our theme aimed to highlight the effect predation has on lapwing eggs and chicks. The youngsters were encouraged to look for the nest of lapwing eggs in the heather and it was then explained how vulnerable they are to crows and foxes.
Our GWCT stand at one of the rare moments when the sun was shining.

We were delighted to welcome Fergus Ewing, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Economy and Connectivity, to our stand when we had the opportunity to highlight some of our key research and the importance of predation control.
