Firstly, I would just like to take the opportunity to thank Brayton for our county bird recorder for the past twenty something year. I'm sure at times I can't have been easy (as I will no doubt be finding out!), but with out his dedication there would probably be no 'archive' of bird sightings for Montgomeryshire for the last 3 decades!
For those if you who aren't aware, as of today (01/01/12) I will be your new county bird recorder! Admitidly I am a little unorganised at the moment, but hope to get acquainted with all you (the ones that don't know me that is) monty birders soon as I can. I will be setting up some new contact details, but for the time being please send any sighting to what ever contact details you have for me (or to Brayton if that is still easier) and I will make sure they get put on to the data base.
