We’ll have to hold off with the crowd scenes.

Runner Ducks are hugely popular - Julian Burrell

We are sad to report that we are postponing the Spring Open Event, as a result of the recent government advice. It is anticipated that the peak of COVID 19 infections will be in May.

During the current crisis, we should be considering how best to care for our birds and support members who may have practical difficulties. Our webzines and email are the most immediate and safest method to communicate.

The suggested measures that are being put in place are not just to restrict individuals, but also to safeguard many of the services that will be required when the virus progresses. Of course, we would not wish to compromise our hosts at an event either.

Our Facebook page is always active and public to view. You can share ideas about how to cope with restrictions, or why not send us your ideas and we can include them in our next webzine?

Above all, stay safe whatever you do.

Morag Jones
BWA President
