On 15.06.2015 the second expert panel meeting was held in Havant, Hampshire.
In attendence were representatives of the Environment Agency, Natural England, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife trust, RSPB, New Forest District Council & CCO and the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership.
The project team presented on progress since the first meeting in early 2015 and the developments in data gathering and Website and App development. The expert panel were supportive of the adopted approach to date and also the proposed activities moving forwards.
The meeting was hugely productive and provided further guidance to the developing project. The project logo was universally approved and the new slogan ‘working together with nature’ also agreed by vote.
Looking forward the project team will continue efforts to engage the public and get passionate birders involved in this project. The App and website will continue to be developed with roll out in September 2015. Analysis of 5 years of BTO data will now be completed in advance of the approaching season while a plan for catchesin 2015/2016 is produced.
