Competition Time!

Hopefully injecting a bit of light hearted fun into our lives during these birding limiting times, GOS is running a competition with three classes. The competition is open to all, members and non-members alike.
It will run for sightings (within Gwent) submitted until June 30th 2020.

To enter, just post what you have seen on our sightings page ‘Post a sighting’.

Please begin the “Main Sighting” field of the post with ‘COMP’ and give your location, date and other details as usual. Please respect our normal rules on reporting rare or schedule 1 species.

Prizes will be awarded for:
1. Most interesting or unusual behaviour by a bird or other (Non domestic) animal during lockdown.
2. Total number of bird species seen or heard on a single exercise outing or single day from home surroundings.
3. A special prize for best contribution to the sightings page over the competition period.

The judges decision, even though subjective, is final.
