Specifically at Rame Head. The RSPB is short of sea watchers for Rame Head for the survey on the 18th August. Dawn to dusk coverage is hoped for and so far I’m on my own! Will be boggle eyed by lunchtime. Any one wishing to help out for a few hours please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ideally I’d like 5 pairs of observers doing 3 hour shifts but any help would be appreciated. Best wishes Bruce Taggart
