The unsung hero’s of the BTO are the dedicated network of regional reps, who are the main link between the scientific staff at Thetford and the volunteers on the ground. They do a tremendous job every year, motivating the volunteers to get involved with all the on-going surveys. Without this dedication, local knowledge, and sheer determination the volunteer network would not be the efficient machine it is today.
At the recent Welsh Ornithological Society conference two of Wales’s regional reps were presented with their long service awards. Both Moira Convery, Ceredigion and Jerry Lewis, Gwent have been in post now for 15 years, and a well-deserved thank you for their efforts.
