Covid-19: Stay safe and observe Government rules (updated May 31)
While Hertfordshire Natural History Society and the Herts Bird Club continue to welcome wildlife records submitted through our websites, we urge everyone to play their part in restricting the spread of the Covid-19 virus by observing Government rules.
Let us know about interesting sightings from home or when you are out of doors, but take recommended hygeine precautions and always observe social distancing while outside. From Monday 1 June you may associate out of doors with up to six people from different households, but you must keep at least 2 metres apart from them.
We will continue to play our part in discouraging larger public gatherings by not publishing information we receive about sightings of rare species that might otherwise attract group interest. Observers who find rarities can safely record them knowing they will be treated with discretion. We hope you will stay safe while taking advantage of increased opportunities to spend more time outside. The Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust website offers good advice about discovering wildlife on your doorstep and wildlife gardening.
