GMBCR Project Statement – 30 days wild in Greater Manchester
The Greater Manchester Birding City Region Project is delighted to be taking part in the Lancashire Wildlife Trust “30 days wild” challenge again this year.
Unfortunately, the Manchester Festival Of Nature public event, due to take place on Sunday 28th June in Heaton Park, has understandably been cancelled due to the current health and safety situation.
However, the GMBCR Project looks forward to the start of the “30 days wild” on Monday 1st June 2020 and looking at the amazing wildlife and habitats that we have in Greater Manchester during the 30 days.
In June 2019 the GMBCR project recorded a total of 100 bird species during “30 days wild” and also played a role in the promotion and organisation of the Manchester Festival of Nature.
This year, the GMBCR Project is looking to promote “The Perfect Ten”, these are ten bird species selected to represent the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester.
“The Perfect Ten” bird species are ten birds that every Greater Manchester resident and visitor should see in their lifetime.
