National (UK) Willow Tit survey 2019-2020
This two year survey is being organized by the RSPB and WOS is the main partner in Wales. This species is now considered very uncommon if not rare in some parts of Wales and is one of the Priority species identified by WOS as needing further survey work and so this project is very timely. The Welsh Coordinator is Anne Brenchley (firstname.lastname@example.org) and some local coordinators are in place notably across Anglesey (David Wright), Brecon (Andrew King), Caernarfonshire (Rhion Pritchard), Denbighshire and Flintshire (Anne Brenchley and Ian Spence), Glamorgan and the Gower (Wayne Morris and Rob Jones) and Pembrokeshire (Bob Haycock). The survey unit is the tetrad and spreadsheets are available for each Vice County identifying which tetrads are Priority or Highly Desirable. If you would like further details or want to take part then please contact Anne in the first instance. ALL records of both Willow Tit and Marsh Tit are welcome and any photographs are an added bonus as these can aid identification if the recorders are themselves uncertain.
