Our national conference for 2021 will be a virtual event held hosted by the BTO on Saturday 6th November on Farmland and Birds in Wales, which was the theme chosen for the cancelled 2020 conference. There’ll be a programme of presentations with the opportunity for questions and discussion, quizzes, the usual review from our President, Iolo Williams, and summaries of activity from the BTO and RSPB. The headline presentations will be by Ian Newton OBE (morning) and Gavin Siriwardena OBE (afternoon).
