The RSPB Local Group in Cornwall rebrands and relaunches

We’ve got a new name too

After a number of weeks of communications and planning, the RSPB local group for Cornwall had a successful relaunch event on the 3rd October. In attendance were a diverse and rousing number of attendees from around our county. Simon Stennet, the RSPB area manager for the West Country, gave our fledging new group a truly interesting talk on what work is being done in Cornwall and its neighbouring counties. We heard about dredging work on the Somerset Levels to encourage Bittern, reconnecting heathland in Devon for Cuckoo and improving island biosecurity in the Celtic Sea for Manx Shearwaters (see below). Not to mention the great work going on at our two RSPB reserves in Cornwall. If you missed it, keep an eye out for our next events, soon to be published…

Alongside our relaunch, we’ve also rebranded to RSPB Kernow Local Group. This is a nod to our cultural identity, and identifies us as the unique county we are. Alongside this name change, we’ve launched new Facebook and Instagram accounts to provide easily digestible information of upcoming events (see links at the top right of the page). Hopefully this will enable us to reach a wider audience so we can continue to attract a diverse group of members.

That’s all for now, but as mentioned keep an eye out for future events and information. We’re keen to keep this momentum going!
