The 2014 North Ronaldsay Bird Report

The 4th issue of the North Ronaldsay bird report is available for order now. It has been designed and produced by NRBO and printed to a high standard (as in 2013) by Lavenham Press. Included is a detailed systematic list of all the species recorded by the observatory during the year, monthly summaries, the year's ringing report and featured articles on the island's Fulmar Population, volunteering at NRBO and mouth watering tales of some of the year's rarities. It is printed in full colour and features many high quality photographs (most of which have never been seen before, such as a beauty of the Scops Owl on the cover!!), data tables and graphs. As with our previous issues, it provides a convenient year by year reference comparable to those of other British bird observatories and a can be an excellent indicator for planning a visit.
