Over the past few years we had very successful Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) training sessions across Wales.This year we are taking a slightly different approach and having a sessions which will also be covering several of the other key BTO surveys.
You are invited to come to a meeting to meet other volunteers, share experiences and learn about existing and future BTO surveys. The agenda has not been finalised so we are asking you what you would like to be included. We will be covering an introduction to BBS, update on BirdTrack (if you don’t already use this system for your bird recording or would like to know more), learn about the Waterways Breeding Bird Survey, the Wetland Bird Survey, the Heronries Census, the 2015 House Martin survey and whatever you may want to discuss.
There is a choice of two venues, both hosted by Kelvin Jones, BTO Cymru Development Officer.
Clawddnewydd Village Hall, near Ruthun LL15 2ND, Saturday 14th March at 13:30.
Pensychnant Conservation Centre, Conwy, Sunday 12th April 10:30
Tea/Coffee will be available, and we would appreciate knowing whether you can attend in advance so please RSVP by 10th March for Clawddnewydd, and1st April for Pensychnant.
We would love to hear from you about what you would like to get out of these meetings and if you know of anyone who would like to get involved in BTO surveys do please bring them along.
