The next national WOS conference, in association with RSPB Cymru and BTO Wales, will be held on Saturday 6 November 2010 in Carno Community Centre, near Caersws, Powys. It’s the only annual opportunity for Wales’ birdwatchers to gather, share news, meet new people, learn about our country’s avifauna – and don’t forget the opportunities to see and buy wildlife art, books and multimedia.
The theme is Wetlands Birds in Wales, preceded by the Annual General Meeting. Download the booking form and send it with your payment by 28 October to guarantee your place (but we suggest you do it now, just in case you forget!)
Speakers at this year’s conference include:
WOS President, Iolo Williams
Chas Holt and Dawn Balmer from the BTO, with an overview from the Atlas
Tom Dalrymple from CCW, on the creation of Newport Wetlands
Ian Hawkins from RSPB Cymru, on the restoration of Anglesey’s wetlands
Patrick Lindley from RSPB Cymru, on declines of Wales’ breeding waders
Derek Moore from WOS, on little ringed plovers in the Tywi Valley
Carl Mitchell from the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, on goosanders
Steph Tyler from WOS, on Wales’ river birds
Dee Doody, artist, photographer and film-maker, with a selection of images of Wales’ wetland birds.
All this, plus lunch and refreshments, for £20 – a bargain!(£25 for non-members, but we’ll knock £5 from your first year’s membership subscription if you join on the day).
