Guidelines for submissions of bird news: We welcome submission of all bird news from anyone, CBWPS member or not. To make it easier to collate submissions we would ask you to follow the Guidelines for Submissions which can be found HERE
BTO Blackcap colour-ringed survey: The winter Blackcap project is studying migration and movements of our wintering Blackcaps. Please look out for colour-ringed Blackcaps in Cornwall this winter, especially in the Falmouth/Penryn area. If you see one or can help with ringing sites in the area please contact Robbie Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org More information on the BTO/UoE project can be found on the website Here
Willow Tit Survey 2017/2018: Following on from last year, new sites are available and can be found on the updated webpage Here
County Listing 2018: Last year around 300 species were recorded in the county. The County List 2018, Yearlisting and Green Birding can all be found in the drop-down menu under the ‘Resources’ tab above – or Here, along with latest news on Bird Races and the Green Challenge.
RSPB surveys and monitoring 2018: can you help? Corn Buntings in the Newquay area, and Snipe and other rare breeding waders on Bodmin Moor are being especially targeted this year. Please see the News Page for more details or to assist.
Have you checked out our For Sale pages lately? Newly added is a beautiful limited edition print by Martin Elliot. There are also some excellent bird and other natural history books on offer, see the ‘For Sale’ section for details.
Sensitive Data: Now that the breeding season is with us again, we are resuming our policy of witholding reports of sensitive breeding (and potential breeding) birds. Where appropriate, we will endeveavour to release news of “interesting” birds, but our first duty is to protect the birds themselves. Please keep sending in your reports, even though they will not appear on the website, as they will still go into the county database and thus be available for the annual report, research and conservation. Thanks for your understanding.
As way of a reminder, here are a few key links to bear in mind:
