    I tried to submit a rare bird sighting but could not submit it because I don’t
    know what a CAPTCHA is. Please can you help?

    Hi Ian,
    Above the CAPTCHA text box there should be a small image with some letters and numbers in, type these (exactly as shown, case sensitive) into the box below it where specified and that should send the message. Its just a spam prevention measure
    Hope this helps

    Hi Paul

    Captcha code seems not to be working… Just reporting a Red Kite over Penryn today at 1230pm. Circling for about 5 mins and slowly drifting towards Falmouth

    Hi Paul

    Me again.. sorry captcha does not seem to work on my phone. Male hobby flying south on the coast path between Poldhu and Gunwalloe 1345 and a marsh harrier hunting in Poldhu reed bed at 1415 today (20th)

    Hope all is well

    Sorry me again, just read this and of course the hobby was an ‘adult’ not a ‘male’… last you will hear from me on this.
