Rare Breeding Birds Policy – Sensitive Species: As we move into the breeding season we will be not be reporting sightings of certain sensitive species such as Peregrine and other RBBP/Schedule 1 breeders on the Society website or on Social Media. Please read the full article linked here: >Rare Breeding Birds Policy< for the full species list and other information. Where appropriate, we will endeavour 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. Remember, the welfare of the birds comes first! Thanks for your understanding. (Please do bear this in mind when sharing information on Social Media too.)
Cornish Choughs: The Society is now maintaining the dedicated Chough sightings database for Cornwall, adding to the many thousands of records received from birders and members of the public since 2001. Please send your sightings to email@example.com including, date, place, 6 fig gird ref if possible, and notes on any colour rings observed.

Membership Records: Could all members please ensure that the email addresses as held by the membership secretary are correct, especially if you have changed your email address in the recent past. A number have recently bounced or seem to be out of date as no replies have been received. Please also check that your membership status is correct.
If you would like to change from receiving a printed copy of Palores to a digital pdf copy, or do not wish to receive BiC (Birds in Cornwall) as part of your membership do please let us know, as in both cases this will save the society considerably both in printing and postage costs.
