The day was a massive success, 22 Aeries, 2 Helis, I don't know how many people including a bunch of the Wildodgs.....some even came on their bikes, THANKS for the support guys!  some Scouts came & joined in, the guys from San Parks Honourary Rangers and Wessa were there as well as Miss Earth & her 1st Princess.

The vultures gave us a number of flybys, we reckon there were around 200 vultures in attendance today.
