Coronavirus/COVID-19 information

Covid-19 Update 4th January: Update following the latest lockdown restrictions.

General Birdwatching: Please see the government website www.gov.uk/coronavirus for the latest advice and regulations on travel, distancing and precautions against the spread and catching of the virus.

Where appropriate, remain safe by avoiding unnecessary contact, mixing and travel. However enjoying fresh air outdoors and our wildlife is an important component in a holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing and we will continue to encourage a greener approach to birding, including local and patch birding as a part of this.

Reserves: Currently all reserves remain open however CBWPS Hides will remain closed for the foreseeable future. This is due to the difficulty in ensuring that social distancing can be maintain in such limited single entrance spaces as well as adequate sanitation schedules being adhered to by unpaid volunteers.

Bird News: The sightings team will continue to publish sightings of bird news in Cornwall. This will include both county and national (BBRC) rarities. However if we feel there is a substantial risk with regards to appropriate social distancing we may decide not to publicise news in order to protect our valued members.

Field Meetings: The walks and events program has been suspended until further notice.

We wish all our members well in these testing times.
