Please Note
Staffsbirdnews is an independant blog run by Staffs birders for Staffs birders. Despite all of the team being members of a wide variety of bird clubs both locally and nationally, the blog is not affiliated to ANY club and will remain so. On occasions we may find it necessary not to add certain things to the blog. There is always a good reason for this and we will happily explain our decision privately with any one who may think we have made a wrong decision. Many thanks for all your continued support, and thanks to all 1,418 followers on Twitter.
