Volunteers Required

2017 is our 10th Anniversary year, which is a fantastic effort when you consider Cornwall Birding is run by just two people. Both Ash and I have been committed to bringing you daily (most of the time) bird news, articles, monthly round-ups and much more for the past ten years and whilst it’s been hard work and sometimes a bit of a chore we are both proud of the result. Likewise, your contributions over the years have been invaluable. We have regular sightings sent in and some of the best images on web, so we very much thank you for your continued support.

Off-shoots from the website include our Facebook page and group, the @CornwallBrdNews twitter account and more recently our new @cwlbirds Twitter news account. All of the these need our attention and with personal commitments we are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up to date. So, with that in mind we are asking for your help. We are looking for keen birders to join our news team, to assist with regular updates to both the main website and our Twitter news account @cwlbirds. Experience with WordPress and Twitter preferable but not essential. Please e-mail your interest to cbbirdreports@btinternet.com for details.

many thanks

Paul and Ash
