Bert Hamar Bursary

A bursary (currently worth £200) is available annually to help fund research into birds within the county.

Over the years the bursary has been awarded for a variety of projects; these include studies of the breeding population of Cetti’s Warblers at Newport Wetlands Reserve, Hawfinches in the Lower Wye Valley and Dippers on the River Monnow, the Afon Honddu, the White Brook and the Angidy stream. A condition of the grant is that a short article on the project should be written for the Annual Report.

Applications, including details of the project, estimated expenses and any other funding should be submitted at any time to
