10.03.13. WeBS March Count
The Mersey Estuary is one of the best wetlands in Britain for birds. We desperately need birdwatchers to help with the monthly Wetland Bird Survey (duck count). It does involve a long walk. If you are interested in getting involved in Sundays count please send Dermot Smith an email. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
