In support of the HNHS Statement on Covid-19 the Herts Bird Club have decided not to publish sightings that may tempt people to travel outside their home area.  In particular, records of species that would normally be highlighted in red as rare or unusual.

While the Herts Bird Club encourages everyone to follow Government guidelines it is not the responsibility of or practically possible for the Herts Bird Club to police people’s movements.  The Herts Bird Club therefore encourages everyone to take responsibility themselves for adhering to Government guidance and the law.

Regardless of whether they are published or not, sightings will continue to be added to the database and are greatly valued so please continue submitting your records as usual.
