Your Summer

This week we heard from Chloe and Charlotte. They have been giving their HOHS teddy bear a tour of California. Here they are pictured at the Explatorium in San Francisco, near Pfeiffer Beach and locked away in Alcatraz. I hope teddy managed to escape!

If you would like to share your summer with us, please email marketing@hohs.co.uk. We’d love to hear from you.

Your Summer

This week we heard from Matilda. She has been in Dorset helping a bird warden ring birds. Over 900000 birds are ringed in Britain and Ireland each year. The British Trust for Ornithology runs the scheme and it is used to provide information about how long birds live and where they go.

In this photograph, Matilda is about to release a sand martin. If you’d like any more information about sand martins, please click here.
