Cardiff based Admiral Group plc has ensured that the 2019 gull count can go ahead with a generous donation of £340.
Flat Holm is an important breeding colony for lesser black-backed, herring and great black-backed gulls. The gull survey has been running on Flat Holm since the 1950’s and provides valuable population data on amber listed species that have been in decline for some time.
The survey involves a team of volunteers undertaking the survey and the money will fund the boats required to take the volunteers to Flat Holm.
We are incredibly grateful to Admiral for their donation as grant funding for this important monitoring study has all but dried up over more recent times. The money will ensure that the ongoing monitoring of this important species can continue for the 2019 season.
