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.


I have just received the latest Roy Dennis White-tailed Eagle bird blog which makes fascinating and interesting reading

Lincolnshire Bird News - January 2021 

Lincolnshire Bird Club - COVID-19 (Tier 3) 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 December 2nd Lincolnshire is now in Teir 3. However, we are still permit outdoors for both recreation and exercise. Therefore, 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.=

Lincolnshire Bird Club - COVID-9 Update

Firstly, we hope you are all keeping safe and staying healthy during this 2nd COVID-19 lockdown. 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.

The latest regulations introduced from November 5th permit being outdoors for both recreation and exercise. Therefore, birding should be ok as long as no other rules are broken especially regarding social distancing and no more than two people in a group.

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.

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.
