This November we are teaming up with the British Ornithologists’ Club and the Natural History Museum for a joint winter meeting focussing on “Bird monitoring within the OSME region”. It will be held at the Flett Theatre, Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 5BD on Saturday 21st November.  The doors will open at 10.00am and the first speaker of the day will be Nick Moran of the BTO, explaining “the value of BirdTrack as a bird recording tool in the OSME region.” 

Gareth Bradbury & James Darke of WWT Consulting will introduce an exciting monitoring project recently established in Kuwait - “Waterbird monitoring at Kadma Bay, Sulaibikhat Bay and Jahra Pools.”

The RSPB's Head of Investigations, Bob Elliot will highlight the importance of long term monitoring of species and habitats in the fight against wildlife crime. 

OSME co-founder and former Chairman, Richard Porter will present his experience of “Bird recording and conservation in Iraq: a 10 year perspective."

Come along and enjoy the incredible surrounds of the Natural History Museum and engage with others interested in bird monitoring within the OSME region.  We look forward to seeing you there.
