So what is happening in the Society and Cornwall? –

*Seabirds Count – survey 2017* A census of breeding seabirds has been organised in the UK and Ireland approximately every 15 years since 1969-70. Together with the JNCC and partners we will be surveying the whole of the Cornish coastline over the next few breeding seasons to continue this work. To take part or find out more please see *Seabirds Count*

Breeding Swifts – Dr Thais Martins of the Centre for Applied Zoology, Cornwall College Newquay is on a quest to find out where swifts are breeding in the County. She would like to know not just where screaming parties are, but more specifically where nesting sites are. If you can supply any records, they can be sent to recorder@cbwps.org.uk and we can collate and forward them to Dr Martins.

A memoriam and further details will be posted in due course. In the meantime, our best wishes are with her family and close friends at this time.

Cait’s funeral will take place on Monday 21st August at 11am at Penryn Methodist Church, followed by burial with Stuart and a wake to be held locally. Further details HERE
