SRMS features on SOC podcast

Mark Lewis (SOC Birding & Science Officer) talks to Amy Challis (SRMC) and Andrew Stevenson (SRMG Chair) about the Scottish Raptor Monitoring Scheme, which has been keeping tabs on Scotland’s Raptors for the last 20 years. To celebrate their 20th Birthday, SRMS released their first population trends for Scotland’s raptors via both a report and a brilliant interactive web tool. Also, Amy shares how she feels about Birds of Paradise and Andrew reveals his Hebridean birding dream (a Willet) and his Hebridean birding reality (a Snowy Owl/white bucket).
