The Foreign Bird League exchanges magazines with overseas societies and articles from these overseas magazines are sometimes included.  


If you wish to submit copy for inclusion in the magazine the Editor will be very pleased to hear from you. Do not hesitate if you feel your grammar or spelling is not up to scratch - this will be reviewed. Even a few notes written "on the back of an old envelope" will be fine. We are particularly short of copy at the moment, so any help at all will be gratefully received.


If you can e-mail the notes, preferably including a few photos, use the following link [email protected] or you can post to the Membership Secretary (address on the subscriptions page)




 

The Summer 2017 magazine will be posted w/c 10th July. If you do not receive your copy within 2 weeks please contact Bryan.
