Access at Davidstow Airfield: Davidstow Airfield is an active airfield and we have been reminded that there is NO right to roam here and that cars must NOT drive onto the airfield at all. We have been advised that we can WALK onto the grassy areas, but not the runways. Cars should be parked alongside the road. Failure to comply, could lead to access being withdrawn altogether.
Help requested: Please look out for this collection box missing from Mousehole Wild Bird Hospital, carved for them in 1958, more important than contents:

Tawny Owl Study – I am a BSc Applied Zoology student at Moulton College, Northamptonshire. I am conducting my third year research project on Tawny owls and aiming to investigate if they have regional accents.
I was wondering if anyone may have any recordings of Tawny Owls from around your local areas that I could have access to as part of this study? Or if members of your bird group would be interested in going out and collecting some recordings of Tawny owls in the wild.
Along with any recordings, the date, location and if possible the type of device in which the recording was taken would be required if available.
If this is something that you would be able to assist me with, please contact me on my email address – email@example.com to discuss further details. Many thanks Katherine Mounsey
