John Havens, Laird of Tullybeagles says: “Through her devoted care of ponds, hedges, grassy wet bits and arable edges, our wader population has exploded from basically a handful of curlew, plovers and oyster catchers in total to at least 2 dozen curlews, same for plovers and well over 100 oyster catchers in the last 5-6 years. She is constantly on the ground monitoring and caring for the birds, feeding, preparation work of cleaning, erecting pens and hoppers. All this with 2 children and a kennel of dogs too. Sally prepares beaters lunches all appreciated by the team. Sally does all this with a love for the land, the wildlife and her time sharing her husband’s passion. Tullybeagles, the wildlife, the team, my family and friends all benefit from the hard work and devotion of Sally”.
