The WhatsApp based bird news service is proving to be successful, with several users regularly contributing their sightings of rare/uncommon species from around Dinton Pastures CP and Lea Farm GP. This has taken the onus away from Fraser to provide all the bird news, as was the case with the Twitter based service, whilst also getting news out quicker for other birders who may be interested in seeing a reported bird.
As a consequence, in 2016 the Twitter based service will be discontinued and totally replaced by WhatsApp. FOLL members are encouraged to sign up for this new service, so that they can reap the benefit of the improved bird news facility.
