Help! Birders Needed
The Mersey Estuary is one of Britain’s best wetlands. We know this because each month we count the waterfowl as part of the national Wetland Bird Survey (WeBS). However, the current team are well past retirement and we desperately need new counters.
You don’t need to be an experienced counter, though you should be able to identify common waders and wildfowl. If you can help please email Dermot Smith on email@example.com for more information and dates for 2013.
Check out Dermot’s Facebook page for recent reports and photos on the Mersey Estuary WeBS Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Mersey-Estuary-WeBS/216178248450013.
The next count is on Sunday 16th December 2012. Contact details above.
