Bird Section Subs 2019
Dear birders, 2019 Bird Section subscriptions are now due. Each year, the annual subs pay for costs such as the hosting of this website, nestboxes on La Societe's nature reserves and upkeep of seven public bird hides. By paying just £5, you will be supporting and promoting local birdlife. Please send payment to Jamie Hooper, 1 Trinity Cottages, Torteval, GY8 0QD. Only Societe members can technically be section members but donations from non-members are welcome too! Many thanks and happy birding.

Protection for local waders
Over the last 40 years, local populations of many wading birds have plummeted and some species have been lost entirely. The long-running 'Wader Count' survey shows that disturbance is a major factor in the decline. If you agree that our waders need urgent protection at key sites, please email the States of Guernsey Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Service (ACLMS) at this address -
