New County Recorder

We are delighted to announce that Marek Walford has been appointed Berkshire County Bird Recorder, following the sad loss of Richard Burness in January. Marek is well-known to birders in Berkshire for his excellent news site: Since 2005 he has managed the county records database and has been a key part of the team that produces the annual Birds of Berkshire report. We look forward to working with him in his new role.

Robert Godden, Chair BOC.

Marek commented: I’m very proud and excited to get this opportunity, and to continue the good work that Dick Burness was doing. There’s a great team on the Records Committee and Editorial Board and together we will continue to improve bird recording in Berkshire. If anybody has any questions I’m always happy to help if I can, so please feel free to email me,
