A new regional representative for the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) in Worcestershire
As many readers will know, Harry Green has for some time expressed his wish to step down as main lead for the BTO in Worcestershire after 43 years serving Worcestershire in the role. I am sure that you will all recognise and thank Harry for his massive contribution to the BTO survey effort in the county during his time in office.
After much consideration, I volunteered to receive the baton and take the job on. It will be good to organise surveys for Worcestershire alongside the Birmingham & West Midlands BTO region for which I have been Regional Representative (RR) for around nine years. Both BTO areas will continue to retain their own separate status, but I will be able to offer potential volunteer fieldworkers a wider choice of survey sites taking in some very interesting habitats from city centres to Worcestershire countryside!
Harry won't be going away! He will be running the Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) in 2015 and has kindly offered to be Assistant RR to me in the coming years to keep his contact with BTO. I will value his sage advice.
I look forward to organising future survey work and meeting BTO people in Worcestershire.
