Welcome to the WOS bird photography competition 2020/2021! This is the first time we’ve held a competition like this and it’s going well, but there’s still plenty of time for more entries, especially from young photographers. Click here for more details – closing date is 28 February 2021.
We are now inviting applications for small grants of up to 75% (maximum £1000) for fieldwork in 2021. Only one grant was awarded in 2020 and the fieldwork has had to be postponed until 2021 because of COVID, but this doesn’t reduce the amounts available for the coming year. There is guidance on how to apply and what you might apply for, together with an application form here.
The first group of wintering curlew on the Dyfi Estuary have now been fitted with British Trust for Ornithology rings and individual recognisable engraved colour-rings as part of a new research investigation. The ECHOES project will study curlew winter distribution and vulnerability to climate change in west Wales.
