Cambrian Bird Report


We publish the Cambrian Bird Report annually, listing bird sightings for the previous year. This gives an account for each of the bird species seen in our area during that year. We aim to make the report interesting reading for birdwatchers, so that you can compare your sightings with what others have seen and get an idea of the best sites to see particular species. It is also a useful tool for conservation agencies, giving an idea of how well different species are doing in the area compared to previous years. The first Cambrian Bird Report covered the years 1953-54, and since then there has been one report for every year – more than 60 years' worth of bird records.
