K. G. SPENCER, 19th Annual Report The Annual Report for 1951 implies that, in the eyes of officers of the Trust, it was a year of consolidation rather than of new projects. Compared with 1948, which saw the launching of the network of Regional Representatives and the appointment of Dr Bruce Campbell as the Trust's first full-time Secretary, the developments were perhaps of a less dramatic nature, but progress was continuous. The Edward Grey Institute, which had so kindly housed the Trust office, was ordered to move to new premises in the Botanic Garden where it would be unable to fmd accommodation for the Trust.
A second contract, negotiated by Sir Landsborough Thomson, provided the necessary funds to employ a full-time officer in the Ringing Office. At that time the work was still undertaken in a voluntary capacity by Miss E. P. Leach. She was a lady of great dedication, integrity and firmness; on first acquaintance a little forbidding until one became aware of the twinkle in her vivid blue eyes. Despite the rather stern exterior she would go to infinite trouble to help people and, if not to her face, was widely and affectionately known as Elsie.
P. H. T. Hartley in his article on 'Back Garden Ornithology'. Even to a scientist the recording of detail may become tedious, particularly if the research is a protracted one, and it is only the discipline of scientific training that enables him to see beyond the gathering of facts to the postulation of hypothesis and theories, which are the fruits of scientific devotion. The scientist (there is nothing professional in this title, it describes rather a way of thinking) must realise that there are other objects in watching birds as laudable as the collection of facts and the expansion of the frontiers of knowledge: their aesthetic appeal; the satisfaction of the collector's instinct in adding new species to a tally (greatly to be preferred to many other forms of collecting); relaxation to the tired mind.
