The Lancashire & Cheshire Fauna Society publish the annual Bird Report for the counties of Lancashire and Merseyside north of the River Mersey. Records are sent into the recorder (currently Steve White) and they disseminate them to section editors whose role it is to summarise these sightings into a readable and informative systematic list.
All of this is done by volunteers, the only costs generally being printing and distribution of the reports. Past copies of these reports are available as pdfs for non-commercial use.
In 2008, we published the latest county avifauna “Birds of Lancashire and North Merseyside”.
The following species require a description as they are rare in the county. National rarities can be submitted via the recorder to the BBRC.
|Taiga Bean Goose|
|American Golden Plover|
|White-winged Black Tern|
|Lesser Spotted Woodpecker|
|Marsh and Willow Tit||(out of normal range)|
|Blyths Reed Warbler|
|Common (Mealy) Redpoll|
