An enjoyable joint east and west Glamorgan BBS Training Day took place at Kenfig National Nature Reserve on 18 March.  Eleven volunteers were introduced to the BBS (Breeding Bird Survey), its background and methodology.  A couple of sessions on the reserve, demonstrated the practical aspects of plotting transect routes and recording birds and habitat along them.

Thanks go to Kenfig NNR for hosting our event, and of course, all our volunteers for contributing to its success and signing up for their 1km squares to survey.

It’s not too late to take part this year if you are interested – we have a few squares available.  More details about local BBS can be found, or contact:
