The Wessex Museums Interpretation Strategy was commissioned in February 2019, to develop a high-level interpretation strategy for the partnership. The overarching theme for interpretation is adapted from the Wessex Museums Strategic Plan:
Sharing the stories of Wessex people and our relationship to the rest of the world.
The strategy then focuses on five sub-themes:
Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.
The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.
The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
