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.
