Why do we produce the bird reports? Our purposes are:
To present a detailed list of species seen and counted during the year, and for this to be as complete as possible, particularly to assist the conservation of bird populations within the area.
To present the data from the records in a way that, hopefully, is readable for the general public and especially for birders who provide the data.
To present the data in a way that is useful to anyone, from any agency, who may wish to check on the local status of any species.
To record, as accurately as possible, the rare and scarce birds that have occurred in the recording area.
