The latest edition of the Dumfries and Galloway bird report is now available. 'Birds in Dumfries and Galloway' is the 17th in the series and reports on sightings, surveys and ringing results during the period 2002 to 2005.
After long delays in production, the current publication covers this four year period in one book, helping to bring it up to date.

SOC Bird Report 2002-05 The book includes an obituary of renowned local artist, author and keen ornithologist Donald Watson whose artwork fittingly adorns the cover of the publication. It then progresses through the systematic bird list, which alongside the usual information giving key sites and counts for each species also usefully highlights what to look for - helping to highlight which records are of greatest value. The results of the Mute Swan census in 2002 are also tabulated as well as ringing records from the constant effort site at Lochfoot.

The publication provides valuable information to locals and visitors alike and should be on the bookshelves of any birdwatcher living in or visiting the region.

Copies of the report, priced £6, are available from Duncan Irving, 12 Great Eastern Drive, Glencaple, Dumfries DG1 4QZ.
