Soil Hill the leaders in Field work(Get stuck In)

i have taken this from the soil Hill Blogg(i hope you dont mind Nigel)
Just to clarify a few issues that have recently cropped up:
This is a local website for local people.

It has no heirarchy other than for admin purposes.

It is no affiliations with people who want to organize how you're life is run.

It does not want to be included in consultations, forums or committees.

It will do the utmost to provide information to people who flog their guts out in the field to record data.

Long Live NK and BS..leaders in the field
Keep Birding Local
