So, as noted, part of my mission or raison d’être is to channel scads of dosh into bird and conservation charities. To this end I’m giving 50p of every British Bird Tour book sale… nay, every single damn book I sell, to the following peeps:
- RSPB, of course
- BTO, also of course
- the BBC Wildlife Fund
- the Hawk & Owl Trust and feel free to suggest any other raptor charity
- and anyone (who I can find or you can think of) who tries to put raptors’ persecutors behind bars.
I’ll split the proceeds evenly between all these organisations. The total from 12 sales up to February 21 stands at… £6.50, so I’m waiting for a decent amount to distribute. And the biggest seller so far? Nine copies of Build a British Bird List, all through Amazon. Things are moving.
Now, any ideas for a good persecution-busting organisation?
