Lincolnshire’s Birding Frontiers: from the Backyard to the Coast
By Martin Garner
Martin will be talking to the Lincolnshire Bird Club on the opportunities that Lincolnshire’s birders have to push back the frontiers of birding in Lincolnshire. Taking us on a journey from our backyards, to the coast.
Martin’s ornithological writing has included articles for British Birds and Birding World magazines. He is credited with discovering the first British records of Caspian Gull, in Essex in the 1990s. In 1997, with David Quinn and Bob Glover, Martin published a two-part paper in British Birds covering the identification of Yellow-legged and Caspian Gulls, which covered the former in far greater detail than any previous published work, and contained the first detailed English-language descriptions of the latter. His first bird-related book, Frontiers in Birding was published by BirdGuides Ltd. in 2008. He is a member of the British Birds Rarities Committee.
