The Buntings

2020 will be the fourth year we’ve taken part in Champions of the Flyway – we love birds and birding and want to help the Steppe Eagles on their breeding grounds in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan!

Once again, we’ll be running the race entirely on foot – well, perhaps not running, but walking with purpose! – and we’re hoping to win the Green Chsampions of the Flyway by doing so. If you’d like to help us help a magical raptor in tragic decline, why not donate a little to our target? Thank you!
