On behalf of the Lincolnshire Bird Club (LBC) we are pleased to present our annual report on the birds of Lincolnshire. The publication of the Bird Report involves a huge amount of work, with many individuals involved in its publication. Thanks are due to the observers and organizations who submit and share records to LBC.  We have had  two bird recorders for more than ten years but when John Clarkson retired at our March 2019 AGM, Phil Hyde agreed to continue as Recorder for the whole county on a trial basis.  We'd like to thank both of them for all their hard and dedicated work. The Lincolnshire Bird Records Committee (LBRC) vets our records,  Roy Harvey has provided stalwart support as secretary of the LBRC and thanks to James Siddle for recently taking on the role of Chair of LBRC.   Particular thanks are due to Colin and Sheila Jennings for all the work undertaken in converting the raw data into the building blocks of the report , Colin Casey has continued to improve our Wildlife Recorder database most especially by developing machine means to convert external data into our database which continues to radically improve our data management for the purpose of report writing. We are extremely grateful to him and Jack Levene of  Wildlife Recorder for the work they have done.  We are also grateful to John and Nicky Clarkson for proof reading this report.
