Breeding Season Records – As from mid March on we will not be publishing specific news of Sensitive and Schedule 1 Breeding Birds on the news page. This includes most raptors, except where obvious migrants, Chough etc and other specific birds which may be nesting in places prone to excessive disturbance. Common sense applies – the welfare of the birds comes first.
We would still very much like all records of all species however, including photographs where appropriate, for the ornithological county record, BiC, and daily/weekly summaries, even if the news is not specifically published on the day.
Cornwall Cattle Egret Survey Sunday 19th March – Many thanks to all those who helped us in this countywide survey.

Netting seabird by-catch. It has been brought to our attention that Cornwall IFCA are holding informal consultations in Mevagissey on the 28th March and Falmouth on the 4th April on the topic of seabirds and other groups caught in fixed gill nets. See IFCA public meetings for details of the drop in sessions. If you have knowledge of incidents that should be put forward you can also contact the society conservation officer firstname.lastname@example.org .
