The Eastern Glamorgan Bird Report No 57 (2018) is presented in B5 format and contains 100 pages reviewing the birding year in our region.
As ever, the bulk of the report is taken up by the species accounts, commentating on the fortunes of resident, migrant and rare birds observed during the year. The region’s first Common Rosefinch and Isabelline Shrike were surely the highlights for those interested in rarities, along with Caspian Gull, Bee-eater, Night-heron, Glossy Ibis and Spotted Crake.
Also included are 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 and BTO news.
Line drawings and photographs continue to highlight the talents of our region’s local birders. Among others the Isabelline Shrike, Spoonbill, Cattle Egret and Wood Sandpiper.
The Eastern Glamorgan Bird Report is free to all members of the Glamorgan Bird Club.
