The Lancashire Bird Report 2005

dropped through my letterbox today – 168 pages, 4 pages of colour photographs and 15 line drawings – all serving to document the birdlife of Lancashire and North Merseyside in 2005. This is the “county’s” definitive history, year-on-year, and over 300 individuals and/or organisations contributed records.

As one would expect most of the report is the standard species list, but it also includes pages on Escapes and Feral birds as well as a nine page report on ringing recoveries from within the area. A first for Lancashire is also documented – the Caspian Gull (at Fishmoor Reservoir, Blackburn) on 26-27 Feb 2005.

The report – published by the Lancashire and Cheshire Fauna Society ( – is available from Dave Bickerton (Secretary) email: for £6.00 plus p/p (or from other usual birding outlets in Lancashire).
