Pembrokeshire Bird Group Conference

Many thanks to the Valero refinery for hosting our annual Pembrokeshire Bird Conference at their site in Pembroke.  It was again a great day with both entertainment from our Birding World alongside fascinating current research and future projections.  Thanks to their generosity all monies from the ticket sales go to the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales.
