After a light lunch at the Visitor Centre we went off in our groups for a wander around the site. There were a large number of birds of many different species to be seen. these included, swans, different types of duck, waders and many smaller birds flitting around. We all found it very interesting and had a most enjoyable afternoon.
Congratulations are due (better late than never) to two of our members, on additions to their families.
Margo MacDonald became a grandmother to twin boys Thomas and James in May.
And Shirley Allaway is now a great-grandmother to Elliot Stanley who was born in June.
I am sad to have to inform you that Mum (Rona Gordon) died on 09th June after a sudden short illness.m
She always enjoyed her membership of the Caledonian Society, and was very pleased to able to attend the Burns Supper earlier this year along with her family, where she particularly enjoyed the dancing display.
Funeral details will be published in the local press.
We send our condolences to all of Rona's family.
