There’s still time to join us for the first bird survey at Carswell Farm on Friday 17 February at 8am. This is an opportunity to help survey the farm at a time when improvements are being made to the range of habitats for birds and wildlife. All are welcome whatever your level of birding expertise. You will survey as part of a team, so we need recorders and spotters as well as expert birders. Please come along.
