I was nominated for a Galway County Council Heritage Award for 2010. Got second place in the Oranmore Electoral Area and a nice bit of Clarenbridge crystal. I was totally gob-smack, thanked a few people and should have said more when receiving the award but was lost for words. Now thinking of all the things I should have said, but also enjoying the moment. The award was for my DVDs, photograph’s and web site documenting Galway avian fauna and providing this resource to schools and Bird Watch Galway.
