East Glamorgan Bird Report, 2019 published

The latest annual bird report from the Glamorgan Bird Club has just been published.  It is the 58th report for our region, and the 11th under the guidance of the Glamorgan Rarities Committee.

The Eastern Glamorgan Bird Report No 59 (2019) is presented in B5 format and contains 98 pages reviewing the birding year in our region.

EGBR, 2019

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.  Of note are confirmed breeding of Golden Plover and Marsh Harrier, but the absence of Lesser Spotted Woodpecker for the first time. Rariities include Citrine Wagtail, Red-rumped Swallow, Serin and Shore Lark.

Also included are ringing reports from Kenfig NNR, Flat Holm and Cardiff Bay highlighting species and numbers caught.  A report on Hawfinch monitoring at Fforest Ganol is included for the first time. 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 Caspian Gulls, Siberian Chiffchaffs and Great Grey Shrike.

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