2015 Bird Report – Writers Needed

Ten writers are sought to help compile the 2015 Yorkshire Bird Report. Work will be starting soon, with the deadline likely to be November 2017. A good standard of literacy, ability to synthesise succinctly large amounts of information and follow the guidance provided are more important than ornithological knowledge. Information is shared online via Dropbox and includes searching and sorting some records in Excel spreadsheets. Ten or so species per writer is usual - some do more and some less, taking a family or parts of. Ducks, herons storks etc, grebes and divers, waders, terns, auks/gannet/cormorant/shag, warblers, pipits/wagtails, and buntings are all available. If interested please email
