The annual Essex Bird Report is the definitive record of the bird population and breeding status throughout Essex. With data including monthly sighting totals and year on year trends the Report is an invaluable source of information on the changing fortunes of our birds. Species are sorted according to the latest BOURC systematic list with appendices for category D & E records. Annual WEBS and ringing data is presented as well as the official Essex list, plus details of the earliest and latest dates for summer and winter visitors that year. The report includes conservation articles and a gazetteer of Essex sites, all illustrated with a selection of the best photographs taken during the year, often including local rarities. This award winning publication is not to be missed!
