November 2020 Wildlife Sightings - Covid-19 update

November 2020 Wildlife Sightings - Covid-19 update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the government's announcement that in England we must stay at home we have amended the normal wildlife sightings section of our website. We will continue to welcome reports from your own gardens, areas that you can see from your house and wildlife seen whilst you are out exercising. Initially only the species will be published, possibly with limited location information. The records will be updated with full location details once the current restriction have ended.

Please report your wildlife sightings to birdrecords@macclesfieldrspb.org.uk

Clear photos will be welcomed and each month a pdf will be attached at the bottom of this page with a selection of photos received (if any).

Please everybody stay safe and healthy.
