So I dug this up, lol I passed year 2 fine at plumpton and applied for big boys uni at brighton and I am now completing and honours degree in ecology, it is one of the hardest things I have ever done and I sadly have to say it has been an uphill battle, I am not failing but I am averaging 50% which at this moment in time I am content with, three of my friends have dropped out Sad, its not really what I want to do but I am going to battle on and complete it, I finish in about 5 weeks and I am currently writing my disseration which is really difficult. It has not been a pleasent experience and Now I hope to get a job, save up my money and go and do the FGASA in south africa that is the plan so watch this space Smiling

Hello Dan - I can't believe you are almost ready to start your final year at uni.  Where has the time gone?!!!   I am really pleased you have found your vocation and wish you every happiness and success in  the future.

Swans are magnificent creatures so beautiful.

Yesterday at WRAS we had a jackdaw bought in with a limp wing so It was sent to the vets with suspected fracture, the vet sent it back saying it was fine nothing wrong with the bird, the poor thing could not lift one of its wings, so I do not think that vet wasvery good1
