SOS Trip to Scotland Opportunity: Scotland 2016 – Due to ill health, a couple have had to cancel their trip up to Scotland. This leaves open a place for another couple or a single person, as a double room has been booked. The cost would be £375 for a couple and £475 for a single person, with £30 of that going to the couple who used this as a deposit to secure the room. The Society are using the services of the Grantown Arms at Grantown on Spey, for bed, breakfast & dinner for 5 nights, starting on 31st May for the journey up and leaving on 5th June, leaving 4 days full of bird watching opportunities.  Although this is extremely late notice, if there are any interested members of the Society, please can they get in contact with Sue Brealey (01939 262450 or publicity@shropshirebirds.co.uk) as soon as possible. This opportunity will be open until Monday, 23rd May, when if nobody comes forward the room will be cancelled with the hotel.

Help! Rarities Without Descriptions: The downloadable Excel document available here is a list of rarities that occurred within the county in 2015, for which no description has been received.  If you are the finder of any of these birds, or, you saw any of them and are able to provide a description, please forward it to the county recorder (Martyn Owen; soscountyrecorder@gmail.com), to ensure that these important records enter the SOS database.
