Do use BirdTrack to record your observations, preferably lists but also casual records! Please use breeding codes wherever possible during the breeding season so that our BirdTrack records will be of use to the current European Breeding Bird Atlas project. All records of colonies would be particularly welcome, eg House Martins, Sand Martins, roof-nesting gulls, etc.
The next Welsh Ornithological Society conference will take place on Saturday, 5 November 2016 at Myddfai, Carmarthenshire.
The Atlas is available in shops at £45 or try Amazon. Currently available for £25 including p&p. Download the order form Atlas order
