Fundraising for the islands

Last year Dave Astins swam from Marloes beach to Skokholm to raise funds for the Observatory and enabled the island to acquire a whole set of portable radio's which have revolutionised communications (and birding) on the island.

Dave is now doing another marathon event and competing in the Ironman Wales event this year aiming to raise funds for Skomer and Skokholm whilst doing so, as he writes below. We thought you might like to consider supporting Dave and hopefully exceed his target. Not many birders put their body on the line in support of our avian friends, so perhaps we could put our hands in our wallets as a somewhat easier option.

I am taking part in Ironman Wales on 18th September and have decided to do something useful (other than ruin my body) whilst doing it....I'd be grateful if you'd chip a few quid into my fundraising pot (my money will go to the Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales, and split equally between the amazing islands of Skomer & Skokholm off the Pembrokeshire coast to help with the amazing work they do to monitor and protect the special wildlife that occurs there).  I'm targeting £2,260 (£10 for every kilometre I will hopefully cover....some will be easier than others):

The link to help with this amazing (or completely mad) fundraising event is :-
