Lancashire Bird Report


The 2022 Lancashire Bird Report arrived in the post yesterday. At 166 pages, plenty to go through and looks great too for the bookshelf. There is a two-page obituary for Roy Rhodes. A short report on the dragonflies of VC59 and VC60 is included, covering parts of Greater Manchester, with a stunning photo of Norfolk Hawker in Wigan! At only 8.50 iit is well worth acquiring. Membership of the Lancashire and Cheshire Fauna Society is only 10, which gets you a mailed-out copy of the report, plus any other publications. In 2023 this was Insects of the Sefton Coast by Phil Smith. A publication on the Hoverflies of Lancashire is planned. Lancashire and Cheshire Fauna Society NHBS Lancs Reports

Lancashire Bird Report 2015 has just been published, interesting to see that Yellow-Browed Warbler has now been removed from the list of species considered by the Lancs rarities committee.

I wouldn't take it personally Sean. I'm not mentioned in the list of observers either, despite some of my records being referred to in the text. Must be a conspiracy smile.gif

Got mine through this week too, but must admit that i'm always dissapointed that they don't assess their BBS submissions like GM do, as i've been submitting breeding yellow wagtails for the last 3 years at a sight i survey (BBS) over there in north merseyside and they never mention it or give me a mention in the back of the publication despite doing that and passing all my records in to the Heysham Observatory for there too. Good read other than that though!

The 2009 Lancashire report arrived in the post earlier this week (see www.lacfs.org.uk). A fine read as usual, showing what's going on over t'other side of Billinge Hill. Notably not one record of Lesser Spotted Woodpecker was submitted for the year.

One has to do one`s bit Mr Broome, and seeing as I actually work in Lancashire it would be rude not to (the border being just six miles from my doorstep !). But don`t worry I can still see the Royal Borough from where I toil smile.gif

Unfortunately White-tailed Eagle and Common Crane (the former in the photos) managed to escape the Systematic List! But an excellent production nevertheless.

The 2008 Lancashire Bird Report arrived earlier this week. It's a beltin' thing to dip in to and the colour plates are excellent. I always find it interesting to compare bits from the Lancs report with goings-on in GM. For example, good days of Meadow Pipit passage over Billinge or elsewhere, unsurprisingly, can coincide with good counts over well-watched Heysham. It's interesting to ponder on what passes along the coastal sites - when you're on the western edge of GM at Billinge and there's nowt about, Formby and Seaforth don't half look close...

I'm guilty of not getting my act together to contribute any records for last year. I notice however, from the contributors list that Mr I Woosey managed to evade the Greater Manchester border guards.
