A small grants scheme is offered by the Welsh Ornithological Society to support the research of birds in Wales.

For 2012, two grants of up to £500 are available for project that will benefit red or amber listed species.

The project should aim to improve:

  1. Current knowledge of status, trends, distribution or species requirements
  2. Habitat conditions at specific sites (the work undertaken will need to be sustainable)
  3. Production and dissemination of species information to assist others in conservation action

A number of red-listed species are resident or breed in East Glamorgan including Lapwing, Willow Tit, Pied Flycatcher, Spotted Flycatcher, Wood Warbler and possibly Trees Sparrow.

Can anyone make use of these grants to increase our understanding of these species in Wales?

More details are available from the Welsh Ornithological Society.
