Severn Counties is proud of its breeding scheme and asks its members to complete a breeding form each year. These records have been kept since 1973 and they provide valuable information on the availability and subsequent breeding results of many species. The forms are collected at the end of October and the Breeding Committee meet during November each year to discuss the results and award the Trophy’s which are then presented at the Annual General meeting in January. The results are then notified to all the national societies for collation into national records.
