Essex WeBS request for your assistance (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
N.b. I am posting this message on behalf of the WeBS Essex Local Organiser. Please do not reply to this post if you want to contact him, use the contact details below. :t:


I have recently taken on the role of WeBS Local Organiser for Essex (Other) Sites; please note this does not include the major estuarine sites that are covered individually by other Local Organisers.

I am publicising the need for counters for the WeBS scheme in Essex; to facilitate this I have created a web page map that shows all the currently identified sites and their current status:


Counts are undertaken once a month over the Autumn to Spring period, on, or as near as possible to, specific dates. Each counter receives a pack of information on how the counts are conducted, and I am able to provide extra support where needed.

Information about the WeBS scheme can be found here:


My contact details can be found here under Essex:


Please consider using your birding experience to benefit the WeBS scheme. It can also be a great way to get to know a particular patch, one already known to you, or entirely new.
