Could you bring your expertise to the development of policy for WOS?

At the 2020 AGM in November, five members of the WOS Council will retire and at least three of these – Mick Green (Chair), Ian Spence (Secretary) and Keith Noble (Conference Organiser) will not be seeking re-election. We shall be losing a combined total of almost 30 years of experience and, more importantly, following last year’s retirement of Julian Hughes and Richard Facey, WOS Council will be losing a significant reservoir of knowledge of current and planned conservation policies and contacts with key individuals in policy-making organisations.

We have lots of great birders who could serve with distinction on Council, but at the moment we really would like applications from birders with organisational and planning skills, good contacts with policy organisations and the Welsh government.

We would love to hear from you if you think you could make such a contribution – particularly important at a time when conservation is taking a poor second place to issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic and post-Brexit negotiations. Please get in touch with Mick Green (our current, but retiring Chair) at if you might be interested.

Current login problems

A quick message to all members:  we are currently changing our membership system and that means new passwords for all members.   Letters giving you the new details are on their way but may take a bit longer than usual to arrive.   In the meantime, you may have problems logging in to the membership areas.

Due to these problems we have made all membership areas accessible without logging in for the time being.

If you are having ongoing problems please contact the membership secretary with your login details and problems.

Apologies for the timing of changing passwords and arrival of letters has not happened in quite the right sequence. Thank you for your continued support of Welsh Ornithological Society.
