The 2013 North Ronaldsay Bird Report

The 3rd issue of the North Ronaldsay bird report is available now. After two years of printing our own reports, the 2013 issue is now professionally made. It includes a detailed systematic list of every species recorded by the observatory during the year, monthly summaries, the year's ringing totals and report, articles on the year's rarities (and this year a Walrus!!) and much more. It is printed in full colour and features many, high quality photographs, data tables and graphs. As with our previous issues, this will provide a convenient year by year reference comparable to those of other British bird observatories and a good indication of when to plan a visit.

The best way to get your copy, is to join the Friends of NRBO. Membership costs just £10.00 per annum with new Friends recieving the latest bird report. You will also receive regular newsletters and a 10% discount on all accommodation at the observatory.

The 2013 report can also be purchased separately for £7.00, plus £1.50 for postage and packaging.
