A short introduction from Amanda
"I am one of two volunteer Garden BirdWatch Ambassadors for the BTO's Garden BirdWatch survey in South Wales. My role is to promote Garden BirdWatch through talks, stands at events, articles in local publications and media appearances. When I'm not fulfilling this role I work full-time as a Payments Officer for Social Services with the City & County of Swansea where I'm responsible for ensuring that foster carers are paid for the vital service they provide for children and young people within Swansea. Being an Ambassador provides a welcome relief to a day spent behind an office desk (although I still manage to clock up many hours at my computer at home!). I particularly enjoy watching garden birds as it's so easy to view them up close without having to leave the warmth of the house; by recording them for the survey I'm making sure that my bird watching counts!"
