PBMS closed over Christmas and new year - and thanks to our contributors!

The PBMS will be closed between 19th December 2019 and 6th January 2020.

If you find a dead bird of prey over Christmas and New Year, please wrap in a plastic bag and freeze (if possible), then contact us on or after the 6th January and we will send you a submission pack as soon as possible.

If it is not possible to keep the bird frozen then please dispose of it because it is unlikely that the bird will be sufficiently preserved prior to receipt.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed to the success of the PBMS over the past year by sending birds and eggs.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you all. Best Wishes from the PBMS Team (Richard, Elaine, Lee, Bev, Tricia and Jacky)
