East Glam Bird Report 2011

It's that time of year again! Get your records together and send them off to me for collation. Full instructions are on the main web site at [scroll down a bit]. By the end of the month if at all possible. In addition if you saw anything that needs a description, then you shd get your submission off to David Gilmore ASAP as it will need to be circulated around the Glamorgan Records Committee. Again full instructions are at the above link, including a list of the species that require descriptions/photographs.
