Less common birds in the SDBWS recording area

See below for the most likely locations in our recording area where and when less common birds might occasionally be seen. It is based on an idea by Danny Cooper and uses data from our records for 2004 and 2005. The intention is to give a few species in each issue of the Newsletter  at the appropriate time of the year. This list is a complete list of the items to appear in the Newsletter. Please see the Annual Bird Report, “Site Guide and Gazetteer” for more detail of the locations. (RA) = Restricted access. Comments on the use or clarity of this item to Tony Quinn, please.
