COVID-19 update 25/3/2020: The Board and wider Bird News Team have corresponded at length about whether, and to what extent, the daily sightings page should continue in the light of the recent Government announcement. This has been a very difficult decision and the consensus we reached yesterday was that:

  • Publication of the daily sightings page will continue, but we will only publish news of garden birds or birds seen on local dog or exercise walks. We won’t publish any news from excursions which are likely outside of these very tight but very necessary restrictions.
  • The Bird News Team will continue to accept your sightings (and we really do encourage you to send them in), but some records may not be published on the website as outlined above. The record of daily sightings is a fundamental part of the Society’s recording process, and even if your records do not immediately see the light of day on the website they will form part of this very valuable resource.
  • Note also that the selected reports in Palores are compiled from this and particularly notable sightings will continue to be reported at a later date.

We hope that you’ll understand and agree with these measures and we’ll have some better news in the near future and promote ways that we can all contribute and share our garden birds with each other.

Coronavirus, COVID-19 and Birding: The board have considered the constantly updated directions and recommendations to counter the spread of Covid 19/Coronavirus. They have decided that at this time (20th March 2020) the only proper decision is to close the Society’s hides, with immediate effect and until further notice. UPDATE, 30/03: Windmill Farm carpark and access road are also now closed until further notice. Please check the current advice on the Society’s website and nationally before visiting any reserves, CBWPS 20th March 2020.
