Covid-19: Stay safe and observe Government rules (updated September 2020)
While Hertfordshire Natural History Society and the Herts Bird Club continue to welcome wildlife records submitted through our websites, we urge everyone to play their part in restricting the spread of the Covid-19 virus by observing Government rules.
Let us know about interesting sightings from home or when you are out of doors, but take recommended hygeine precautions and always observe social distancing while outside. From 14 September you may associate out of doors with up to six people you do not live with (or are part of a protective 'bubble' with you).
We will continue to play our part in discouraging larger, illegal public gatherings by not publishing information we receive about sightings of rare species that might otherwise attract group interest. Observers who find rarities can safely record them knowing they will be treated with discretion. We hope you will stay safe while taking advantage of increased opportunities to spend more time outside.
