04/01/15 The results are in for the SK58 sightings yearlist with Mick Clay observing 123 different bird species within the SK58 10km square. For such a small geographical area this is an impressive count which highlights the diversity of species we are fortunate to have within our local area. Congratulations to Mick and thanks to all those who took part and provided their counts throughout 2014. The 2015 race is already underway, and in January alone it is possible to see as many as 80 different bird species in the square, so good luck!

31/12/14 Can anyone who has bird sighting records from 2014 that are not yet submitted please send them in ASAP, we want to get 2014 closed off now, thanks and Happy New Year!
