COVID-19 Update 26/03/20: In view of the current Coronavirus situation and following Government guidance and recommendations, the Society walks program has been suspended and all CBWPS Hides along with Windmill Farm carpark and access road are now closed until further notice. We will continue to publish Daily Bird News on the website, but please note that this will be restricted to sightings from members gardens, local area outdoor exercise or incidental to other necessary travel purposes only, and selected reports may be published with restricted data or remain unpublished. Please continue to send in all your records, stay safe, and bird responsibly.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org including, date, place, 6 fig grid ref if possible, and notes on any colour rings observed.
Save Our Swifts Update: Please note that there is a degree of uncertainty on what we will be able to achieve with the project this year. It is possible that since Swifts are late nesters we may have an opportunity to carry out surveying this year. In any case please still look at what you can do with nestboxes (link page Here) and bear in mind that this project will likely now be a two year project.
Sensitive Breeding Birds: Now that the breeding season is upon us we will be resuming our policy of withholding reports of sensitive breeding (and potential breeding) birds in the County. Please keep sending in your reports as even though they may not appear on the website 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. The full list of species including RBBP and Schedule 1 species can be found on the website here. Please always bear this in mind when sharing information on social media too.
