The latest birding news from around the county
The Society has recently donated an outdoor camera to the South West Children's Hospice at Charlton Farm, Wraxall, so that children, parents and visitors can closely monitor the bird life using their garden feeders, while remaining in their refectory.
The Blackdown Hills and Quantock Hills AONBs, with help from the Society and BTO, are seeking help in monitoring Nightjar populations.We hope that SOS members may be prepared to help. It is also hoped that records of other nocturnal and crepuscular species may be obtained.
Katie Stacey and Luke Massey, of Sunbittern Media, are working on a Crowdfunded documentary, called ‘The Last Song of the Nightingale,’ one of Britain's best loved birds, whose song has established itself firmly in British heritage. They need to raise funds to complete the work, and perhaps you can help.
