Local Member Receives Award

Mathilde Baker-Schommer was presented with the Eric Thurston Award in recognition of her contribution to the work of Cheshire Wildlife Trust.

Mathilde has been part of Wirral Wildlife recording team for about 12 years, since she retired from teaching biology. She does bird and plant surveys on several sites each year, and for several years has helped with the formal monitoring on Thurstaston Common for National Trust each September.

She organises the Red Rocks wardening group, as well as visiting herself and reporting on any problems. She is one of our New Ferry Butterfly Park school visit leaders, and occasionally helps with other events there. Mathilde is also vice-chairman of Mersey Estuary Conservation Group.

We are grateful for her continuing dedication to wildlife on Wirral.
