A new year and a bit of sunshine here today after several grey days.
The other thing that has brought us a bit of brightness is the unveiling of our new logo. Designed by SVBG steering group member, Charles Sinclair, the kingfisher seems to sum up the influence the river has on the valley and local biodiversity.
Like the otters and dippers, kingfishers are seen on the Sid on a regular basis.
Th new logo will now sit on our homepage, where it will introduce the group, and will also start to appearing our social media, newsletters and newspaper articles.
We hope it inspires you to notice the wildlife in the valley, to record it and to take part in the many surveys we promote.
The next is the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch survey. It focuses on the birds seen in gardens, and most of us don’t have enough water in our gardens to see a kingfisher. But there are many other birds you could record.
To take part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2022 just follow the link and enjoy recording what you see.
