The latest annual bird report from the Glamorgan Bird Club has just been published.  It is the 52nd report for our region, and the 5th under the guidance of the Glamorgan Rarities Committee.

Eastern Glamorgan Bird Report, 2013The Eastern Glamorgan Bird Report No 52 (2013) is presented in B5 format and contains 76 pages reviewing the birding year in our region.

Species account form the basis of the report, commentating on the fortunes of resident, migrant and rare birds observed during the year.  A Long-billed Dowitcher at Rhaslas Pond was only the second record for our region and adds to a growing list of species observed at this site threatened for development.  A drake Lesser Scaup returned once again to Cardiff Bay and now seems settled into a routine of wintering here.  Other local rarities of note were Avocet, Long-tailed Skua, Bonaparte’s Gull, Red-necked Phalarope, Hoopoe and Nightingale.

Also included are a report on the status of species over the last decade in a Cardiff suburb, a county ringing report along with accounts from Kenfig NNR, Flat Holm and Cardiff Bay highlighting species and numbers caught.  Other features are  a report on the year’s weather, migrant dates, BTO news and the county list.

Line drawings and photographs continue to highlight the talents of our region’s local birders.

The Eastern Glamorgan Bird Report is free to all members of the Glamorgan Bird Club.
