Cheers Mark!!

Today is the last day at the Centre for our manager Mark Shields who is going back to the RSPB at Loch Gruinart as a volunteer.  Even though he is not being lost to Islay, and we hope he will still be lending us a hand now and then, he will be sorely missed. 
You have been a great presence about the place...
Many thanks Mark...


  1. I would like to wholeheartedly endorse what Carl has said.

  2. Do not stand at my desk and weep;
    I am not there, I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my desk and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die.

  3. It's not too late to apply for the goose counting job, Mark - honest! Where others have failed I'm sure you will succeed : )

  4. No chance, I can barely count to 10. Plus Pete would never speak to me again if I got it!
