They are normally alway held the 2nd Saturday in August, but as there are 5 Sats this year maybe they thought the 9th was too early? The RSPBA would be best suited to answer it ? And you know they make the rules to suit themselves? maybe a couple of them were on holiday earlier?

I understand that it depends on where Cowal falls,

The Worlds are always 2 weeks before Cowal, which falls on the 5th Saturday this year the 30th.

I am fairly sure this is why, second Saturday from the end of August, not from the start
