PBMS closure and a happy Easter to all our supporters

We will be closed for bird submissions after today (1st April) until Tuesday 6th April.


If you find a dead bird of prey over Easter that is in good condition (head and whole body intect, no signs of decomposition) and are able to double bag and freeze for us, then please do so and thank you.

If you are unable to store the bird in a very cold place, then please do not collect the bird. Unfortunately, a warm temperature means decomposition and we require the internal organs for analysis.


Many thanks to all of our contributors. Have a safe and happy Easter - we hope you all get at least one Easter egg!
