Generally a fairly quiet month, compared with the mega-rarities recorded in other parts of the UK with the highlight being a warbler at Rhyl Brickworks from 11th to 13th, initially identified as a Hume’s Leaf Warbler on its call, but later ‘downgraded’ to a Yellow-Browed Warbler. For some the jury is still out!

Notes for Applicants
• Applications must be made using the form (available in MS Word from November).
• Projects must take place within Wales.
• The grant can pay for costs of the project such as materials, research and surveys including travel expenses, habitat management and technical advice. It should not pay for core funding for a group, nor for telescopes or binoculars to undertake fieldwork.
• The funding must be used for biodiversity conservation work and not to fulfil any existing agreements such as Service-level agreements, agri-environment works, planning obligations.
• Any individual or non–profit group or organisation may apply. If you are applying on behalf of a non-constituted group and therefore do not have a bank account (such as a Biodiversity Action Group), you may nominate an organisation to administer the project finances. Eligible organisations include Local Authorities, Registered Charities, and Government Organisations.
• A nominated person must sign the application form accepting the conditions of grant on behalf of those involved in the project.
• The applicant must supply adequate information to justify the project.
• Grants will be made in two parts: half before the project and half upon receipt of a report on the work.
