*Seabirds Count – survey 2017* A census of breeding seabirds has been organised in the UK and Ireland approximately every 15 years since 1969-70. Together with the JNCC and partners we will be surveying the whole of the Cornish coastline over the next few breeding seasons to continue this work. To take part or find out more please see *Seabirds Count*

Guidelines for submissions of bird news: We welcome submission of all bird news from anyone, CBWPS member or not. To make it easier to collate submissions we would ask you to follow the Guidelines for Submissions which can be found HERE

Breeding Season Records: We will not be publishing specific news of Sensitive and Schedule 1 Breeding Birds on the news page during the breeding season. Common sense applies – the welfare of the birds comes first.

We would still very much like all records of these species however, including photographs where appropriate, for the County Record etc even if the news is not specifically published on the day.

Website update: New on the cbwps website – ‘First Spring Arrivals 2017’ detailing first dates of new migrants into the county.
