Welsh Bird Report 2011

This little beauty plopped down on my doorstep a couple of days ago.  The new edition of Birds in Wales includes the 25th Welsh Bird Report, which summarises bird records from across the country for 2011.

What I like about this report, published by the Welsh Ornithological Society (WOS), is that it enables you to put our Eastern Glamorgan sightings into a Welsh context.  I found the wildfowl section particularly interesting because it takes it a step further and examines the Welsh counts from a UK and an international perspective.

As well as a Systematic List of bird species and records it also includes: a report, written by Peter Howlett,  on bird ringing in Wales in 2011; a summary of selected ringing recoveries and an article by Nick Moran about BirdTrack.

You can buy a copy of the Welsh Bird Report from WOS for £8.  But, a far better idea would be to join WOS (£15 pa for individuals), because you’ll then receive two issues a year of Birds in Wales, one of which includes the annual Welsh Bird Report. You may also choose to receive the WOS bi-monthly e-newsletter as well as get a discount on attendance of the Annual Conference. A bargain!
