The Lincolnshire Bird Club Committee are pleased to announce the publication of a new county avifauna:
Due to COVID restrictions copies will be posted out at £43.00 including postage and packing.
Birds of Lincolnshire is a full county avifauna in A4 size Hardback book containing 240 pages in full colour including over 870 images.
Featuring a front cover painting by Nik Borrow commemorating the first Pallas’s Sandgrouse invasion at Saltfleetby in April 1863.
It covers all 402 BOU Cat ABC bird species recorded in the county up to 2019 and certain key records for 2020.
Species in Cat DE are also covered along with escapes.
The status of each species is described and sightings listed for the more rare and scarcer species.
Each species account is accompanied by local photographs or drawings and in most cases distribution maps of sightings and graphs of abundance changes where appropriate.
There are also chapters on habitats, the best birding sites and breeding birds of the county as well as a photo gallery and a full BOU checklist of species recorded in the county.
The team of authors writing and producing the book include Colin Casey the Database Manager for the Lincolnshire Bird Club, Philip Espin the Chair of LBC and current and former Lincolnshire County Recorders Philip Hyde and John Clarkson. All four have been involved in the writing and production of the annual Lincolnshire Bird Report over the past decade and have been members of LBC since it was founded in 1979.
The book will be published on 15th March 2021 and posted out soon after.
