Even in these exceptional times caused by the spread of the Corona virus and Government recommendations on social distancing, you should be able to get involved, especially if you are surveying on your own. Please visit the RSPB site for full details of how to join in – there’s still time.
We’ll have at least three crucial vacancies on WOS Council from November 2020. 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 to the direction of WOS – 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.
Other nominations included Alpine Swift, Dotterel, Cetti’s Warbler, Great Grey Shrike and Yellow-browed Warbler.
