Breeding Season Records
As we approach the breeding season, certain sensitive species will no longer be reported on Recent Sightings, for obvious reasons. Please do continue to send records in, as they will be entered on the county database and can be used for planning enquiries, conservation and scientific research.
Choughs March Update
With the choughs’ in Cornwall busy nest building we won’t be reporting sightings online until the summer, but please do continue to send in your records as they are very useful. With some new pairs joining the breeding population it should be a good year!

The RSPB Beached Bird Survey needs more volunteers – can you help?
The Beached Bird Survey is an effective way of monitoring trends in oil and other pollution incidents that affect seabirds. The RSPB needs more volunteers to take part in this simple survey in SW England so we can increase our coverage of accessible coastline. It involves walking an allocated stretch of beach and recording any oil and the number and species of any `beached’ birds. Details of the survey and requirements are on the link below.
