Lincolnshire Latest Bird News

This page will be updated on a regular basis, to provide a convenient news service to scarce & rare birds found within Lincolnshire. 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…

If your sightings is missing from the list, then please let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Records of more common species are still very important and should be submitted to the county Recorder (again, send all records to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or submitted online using the BTO BirdTrack or eBird Apps. ALL records will then be added to the Lincolnshire Bird Club data-base, to be included in the Annual Reports. PLEASE NOTE that none of the reports shown on this page have been verified or checked by the Lincolnshire Bird Club Records Committee. Please Note if viewing photographs on a mobile phone that this feature is best viewed with the phone held in landscape view.

 

 

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.

Holbeach area

White-tailed Eagle, 

The latest data shows the WTE has moved just over 4 miles south-east back to the area on the Wash near Holbeach St Matthews that it favoured before coming to Frampton. 

Yesterday it spent an hour at the mouth of the Welland between 11:00 and 12:00 before moving SW. The white arrow was 05:30 this morning. Not sure how accessible that area is, but if there is anyone local who can check it out then please do let them know. Information from Tim Mackrill from the Roy Dennis organisation

Details of the White-tailed Eagle that has roamed Lincolnshire in the last four days

The bird is G461, a 2cy male from IoW that has been in West Norfolk recently. It flew across to the Lincolnshire side of the Wash on 14/5 and spent two days on the Wash near Holbeach St Mary. It then completed a big circuit of Lincolnshire on 16/17 before returning to the Holbeach St Mary area yesterday. This morning it has moved to Frampton. I have attached map showing all these movements.

About Us

We are the Lincolnshire Bird Club

Our aims are to encourage and further the interest in the birdlife of the historic County of Lincolnshire; to participate in organised fieldwork activities; to collect and publish information on bird movements, behaviour, distribution and populations; to encourage conservation of the wildlife of the County and to provide sound information on which conservation policies can be based.
