The Dilys Breese Medal is a medal awarded by the British Trust for Ornithology[1] to recognise communicators who help to deliver ornithological science to new audiences.[2] It is named in memory of film maker Dilys Breese,[3] who died in 2007, and was inaugurated in 2009,[2] funded by a bequest from Breese. The medal features a design by Robert Gillmor,[2] showing a robin in front of a TV screen.[2]

The inaugural awards were made in November 2009,[2] to six recipients[2] at a ceremony at the House of Lords.[2]
