2017 Flamborough Bird Observatory AGM

The observatory AGM was held on the 11th March at Bridlington Links Golf Club and was very well attended with over 35 members present. After an excellent buffet, there followed a truly mesmerising talk by Paul Stancliffe of the BTO entitled ‘Tracking Technology – let the birds tell their story’.

It was announced at this meeting that our long-standing secretary Chrys Mellor would be stepping down after eight years and we thank her greatly for her hard work, patience and diligence over this time. Chrys has vowed to take more of her excellent Puffin pictures now she has so much more free time.

Our new secretary is Tony Hood and his contact details are: 9 Hartendale Close, Flamborough, East Yorkshire, YO15 1PL. Tel: 07876022951 or email: tonyhood74@gmail.com

New Committee Members:

The new recorder for east of the dykes is Andrew Hood and any sightings and records should be sent to the fborecords@hotmail.com . We would like to thank the former recorder Neil Parker for all his hard work and wish him well.

Treasurer: Max Webber is stepping down and Jo Hood taking over. We wish Max and his wife Paula all the best for their move to Aberdeen! Jo’s email is: johood74@outlook.com
