The Hampshire Bird Report for 2019 was published in November 2020.

The book is 256 pages long, the major part of which is taken up with the Systematic list covering the 249 species recorded in the county during the year. The book also contains regular papers including the Review of the Year and the Ringing Report and various appendices.

There are six main papers covering the HOS survey of breeding Woodlarks in the New Forest, Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers in Hampshire, colour-ringing of Avocets at Needs Ore, the first breeding of Cattle Egrets, an update on the Solent Wader and Brent Goose Strategy, and the breeding birds at Longmoor Inclosure. There is also a report on the county’s first Eastern Olivaceous Warbler.
