PBMS highlights value of citizen science at Welsh Ornithological Society meeting

Last Saturday, the Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme (PBMS) presented at the Welsh Ornithological Society’s (WOS) annual conference in Monmouth. The presentation, given by Lee Walker, ran through the history, aims and recent results of the PBMS.

“It was great to be asked to present at the WOS conference,” says Lee, “The conference was attended by about 130 enthusiastic amateur and professional ornithologist mostly from Wales but also other parts of the UK. What was great to see was the relatively high proportion of younger ornithologists in attendance. They had a lot of questions about what the results of the PBMS tell us and how they can contribute to the scheme.”
