0 Replies and 612 Views In Memory of Doddie Kent    612  0 Started by  swwchris In Memory of Doddie Kent   Doddie first registered with Birdline on the official website on 15/7/2008 but was active for many years before this. She advised at the time of registering that she had her own wild caught African Grey and a home bred Orange winged Amazon. Doddie soon became a Safehouse for Birdline. Many many people visited the house to either drop birds off or to collect birds, apologies to her family for all the telephone calls, the late lunches and late evening meals! The ...

9 Replies and 2308 Views Tweets for Birdline    2308  9 Started by  carolrifka Hello! With Anne Conway's permission, I have just set up a Twitter account for Birdline. You can find it here: Please follow if you're on Twitter and please pass me any news, event listings, links to parrot articles or other interesting bird stuff that might be good tweetable info. I think twitter will be a good way to get the word out about anything going on at Birdline, but I also hope it will be a place for posting info on the lighter side of things. ...

10 Replies and 3618 Views Members and Member Numbers    3618  10 Started by  Deleted User Hey Everyone, OK, for most of you, this post won't make a lot of sense and you probably don't care, but for some the question of how many members Birdline has, is causing much confusion, despite the Birdline leadership explaining things. So, I&160;will try and explain how it works and why, even though it looks like we have 3800&160;members, we actually don't. The confusion appears to have been started by a small indicator on the bottom of the forum page.. The indicator...

1 Replies and 3370 Views Recent Posts & View Unread    3370  1 Started by  Deleted User Hi Guys, Since our last update to the forums, it appears the developers broke the 'Recent Posts' section at the bottom of the website. Instead of showing just the latest reply to a post, it was showing all recent replies to posts. It appears that this has caused a lot of frustration and upset. Developers are denying that it's changed. So, I have removed that feature from the website. To be honest, it is NOT&160;the best way to check for new posts. The best way is by using the 'View U...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I was wondering where is everybody When I joined a few years ago there was always someone here, questions to be answered, suggestions, and just general bird chit chat. It seems such a shame no-one seems to be bothering with this website anymore. I get that FB has over run the world but come on guys for those of us that WILL NOT sign up to it cant we get this one going again. Deb x

6 Replies and 1330 Views Gift Aid  1330  6 Started by  swwchris A big thanks to Sharon Hill for helping again with submitting our latest Gift Aid claim. On this occasion in particular it proved to be a real task aligning our data, and its format with that required by HMRC. Now we have a two year claim history, we are eligible to claim GASDS - Gift Aid Small Donation Scheme. This means that we can claim gift aid on donations made at shows etc (not including amounts over £20 made by a single individual). There is a small amount of work to be done by us,...

2 Replies and 1566 Views Problem with downloadable form  1566  2 Started by  SharonH FAO Marc or Chris I suspect.   I've just been with a safehouse who were trying to do an evaluation, but the .pdf version of the evaluation wasn't working. I remember this happening in the summer but it was fixed, so I'm not sure what's happening. They were using Windows 7.   They will print off the .doc one and fill in, and I will scan it to an email afterwards, so we will get it done the long way round.   Any ideas.....
