This is a free service and LBC Members wishing to get more up to the minute information should check commercial news services. The Sightings page and @Lincsbirding Twitter feed are intended to alert birders to rare (RED) and scarcer (BLUE) species that they might be interested in seeing within the County. For a full details on Gib Point remember to check their up to date blog at http://gibraltarpointbirdobservatory.blogspot.com/ which gives far more details than shown here…

Lincolnshire Bird Club - COVID-19 (Full Lockdown) Update

In keeping with the ever-changing government regulations concerning social distancing and unnecessary travel regarding the coronavirus pandemic, we are taking the opportunity to communicate the Lincs Bird Club's position on bird news dissemination. From January 4th Lincolnshire is in full lockdown. However, we are still permit outdoors for exercise. Therefore, local birding should be ok as long as no other rules are broken especially regarding social distancing.

We will continue to maintain our Latest Bird News page (updated each evening) and the Lincs Rare Birds WhatsApp Group - members sharing bird news. The bird club committee believe this helps reduce social isolation by allowing members to keep in touch with the outside world and hopefully it will help some get through what will be a very frustrating time.  However, we will continue to closely monitor the situation, and we may change our policy if events suggest that is required. There is of course no compulsion on members to share bird news should they consider local circumstances are such that they prefer not to.
