The Yorkshire Bird Report for 2013 is now available!  Whilst published much later than we would desire, this report reflects the sterling efforts of a large team of dedicated volunteers.  Whether you are interested in our rarer or commoner species, this report provides an enjoyable summary of Yorkshire's avifauna in 2013.

This 232 page book covers every bird recorded in Yorkshire during 2013.  The systematic list provides a thorough breakdown of the status of each individual species, with counts, distribution and status updates, beautifully illustrated by our talented artists.

There is a gallery of stunning photographs by local bird photographers, showcasing the diverse range of birds and their habitats in Yorkshire.

The Review section includes articles on Baikal Teal and Brunnich’s Guillemot, both of which were recorded in Yorkshire for the first time in 2013.  There is a useful summary of early and late dates of migrants, information on how to submit evidence of rare breeding birds in Yorkshire, and the report culminates with an update on Ringing Recoveries showing just where our 'local' birds get to.

This is a must-have publication for anyone interested in the birds of Yorkshire!  It is issued free to members of the Yorkshire Naturalists’ Union and is available for non-members to purchase for just £12 plus £2.50 p&p.
