Dave Flumm Retires after 30 Years!!

It appears we have missed a milestone in Cornwall’s Ornithological history, with the retirement of the RSPB’s Dave Flumm. Dave retired earlier this month after 30 years loyal service to the RSPB. He has been a regular contributor to Cornwall Birding for the past 10 years and we wish him a long, happy and bird filled retirement. All the very best Dave and thank you for your support over the years.
