Welsh Ornithological Society Annual Conference, 2012

This year's annual joint conference of WOS, BTO Cymru & RSPB Cymru will be held on Saturday 10 November, at Myddfai, Carmarthenshire.

The theme of the day is Marvels of Migration, with a particular emphasis on how technology is revealing more about migratory birds and the habitats they use. It promises to be a fascinating day, bringing together top speakers from around the UK, including:

  • Roy Dennis (satellite tracking of raptors)
  • Andy Clement (cuckoo tracking)
  • Danae Sheehan (wood warblers wintering in Africa)
  • Tony Cross (Welsh woodcock tracking)
  • Tim Guilford (puffin and Manx shearwater navigation & behaviour)
  • Jon Green (rare migrants in Wales)

Subbuteo Natural History Bookshop and a Swarovski optics stand will be in attendance.

The full programme and booking form are available at the WOS website.
