We have received the sad news that our former chairman Derek Moore passed away this morning in Glangwili Hospital after a long illness. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his wife Beryl and his family.

The Funeral of our good friend Derek Moore will take place at Narberth Crematorium on Friday 7th of November at 1.00pm. Refreshments afterwards at Plas Hyfryd Country House Hotel.nearby Further information will be available on our home page shortly.

No flowers or wreaths. A fund will be set up as a legacy to Derek to help young conservationists. Suffolk Wildlife trust will hold the money at the moment so that gift aid can be claimed. Donations should be made payable to Suffolk Wildlife Trust..... with a note attached (not on the cheque) saying it is in the memory of Derek Moore and stating that you are a UK taxpayer and giving your full address. It will be a Humanist ceremony and a few people will talk about Derek. His ashes will go to Skomer and a Suffolk Nature Reserve. Next year in the spring there will be a memorial service for Derek in Suffolk

The Carmarthenshire Bird Club exists to promote the observation, study and recording of the wild birds and wild-bird populations of Carmarthenshire. The club also organises meetings for its members which include field trips and talks on wildlife topics. Club meetings are an excellent opportunity to meet other birders and to visit places of ornithological interest in enjoyable company. We have over 100 members.

The club welcomes new members. Membership is available to anyone with an interest in the wildlife of Carmarthenshire. Birds don’t have to be your only, or even your principal, interest.
