A request from Keith Wimbush on behalf of WMBC

The West Midland Bird Club is organising a new survey of the Black Redstart in 2016. The survey will be conducted throughout the whole of the West Midland Bird Club area.
The aim of the survey is, primarily, to establish the current status of the species within the area and then to correlate the collected data to the previous survey conducted 30 years ago. I will then be producing a paper on the findings of the survey.
I have been nominated as one of the organisers of the survey and, without the help of volunteers, the whole potential of this survey cannot be achieved.
Would you please be kind enough to post an appropriate request for help on the TVB blog in an attempt to generate some interest. A previous request posted in the West Midland Bird club magazine did not produce much of a response. If candidates would initially contact me by way of email (, I can then include them within the survey framework and allocate survey areas accordingly.
Many thanks in  anticipation of your kind help.
