L.O.S. Annual Sponsored Bird Watch

Our annual Sponsored Birdwatch will be held on Sunday 11 May this year and the customary meal afterwards will be held at the Raven Inn in Glazebury.  Please see your email from organiser Martin Ansell for details of the day and menus and let him know your numbers for the meal and choice as soon as possible, but by Saturday 3 May at the latest.

The five teams to date are:

BALD EAGLES
Eric Munroe, Alan Wilcox, Martin Ansell, Keith Burgess

LITTLE BUSTARDS
Dave Jones, Phil Tosh, Joe Doherty

THE KING AND WE THREE
Eddie King, George and Angela Pike, Michael Arundel

INDIAN RUNNERS
David Shallcross, Anne Other

FEATHER BRAINS
Joan and Jim Disley, Martyn Jones, Jeff Hurst

RULES OF THE DAY
  1. Use the Leigh OS recording area as defined on our website
  2. Species must be live and in their natural habitat, flying or on the ground (nothing caged) and on the British list
  3. Sightings should be by the team, not an uncorroborated individual sighting.  Please put where you saw a species on the Alphabetical Bird List so it can contribute to reports and make sure a copy gets to Eddie King, as Recorder, for verification on the day. Eddie has the last word on accepting sightings
It's not too late to enter a team, all you need is at least three people and a team name.  Then let Martin know and he'll send you a sponsorship form and bird checklist.
