County Recorder

As from 1/10/2016 Phil Bristow will be the new CR for East Glamorgan, as I am retiring from the post after 8 years. I would like to thank all our local birders for the support given to me and the GRC over the years. It's been a great honour and a privilege to be CR for East Glamorgan, however it's time to move and I know you'll all give Phil a good welcome. Sincere thanks to all Glamorgan birders. Cheers Jake.
