The Hampshire Bird Report for 2018 was published in November 2019.
The book is 256 pages long, the major part of which is taken up with the Systematic list, covering the 251 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 HOS surveys of breeding Nightingales and Dartford Warblers, the tracking of Curlews from the New Forest and the Solent using GPS technology, the life history of an individual colour-ringed Woodlark. There is a report on the county’s first Thayer’s Gull and the influx of wintering Hawfinches. There is also a short Note on Grants for projects made in 2018.
Copies of the bird report can be obtained from the HOS Sales Officers (details below).
We have a long term plan to digitize back copies of the Bird Report, which can then be downloaded from this website. In the meanwhile, an index of the papers included in each year’s publication can be found here – HAMPSHIRE BIRD REPORT – index of papers.
