Quotes

Alicia's dance teacher, Olga Gwynn, of the Gwynn School of Dance, said she was "pleased" Alicia had been selected and added: "She is very talented and works very hard. It's a great honour for her."
"Barnsley is endowed with more varied habitats than most authorities. I can't think any other local authority that can boast that bitterns and avocets breed in the lowlands and golden plover, dunlin and mountain hares breed in the uplands."
Chas Holt, of the BritishBritish Trust for Ornithology (BTO) and the survey co-ordinator, said: "I think we should be quite alarmed because the declines for many of these species are pretty consistent. Species like the ringed plover, redshank and dunlin, their decline has been consistent for 10 to 20 years now. And there is no obvious change happening, so in 10 years time we could be well down on numbers.."
