Bird Atlas

“The production of the Arran Bird Atlas 2007–2012 is a wonderful achievement by the Arran Natural History Society. This project has engaged both local and visiting birdwatchers and they have worked hard to cover the whole of Arran to carefully document the birdlife in both the winter and summer months. This beautifully produced book, and the dataset behind it, will provide an important baseline against which future changes can be measured. For anyone with an interest in the birds of Arran, this atlas is an essential companion.”
Dawn Balmer, Atlas Coordinator, Bird Atlas 2007-2011

“Got my Arran Atlas today. A beautifully produced and very informative piece of work detailing all Arran's wintering and breeding birds. A superb testament to all those involved"
Bob Swann, Scottish Organiser, Bird Atlas 2007-2011

"The Arran Natural History Society is proud to have produced the Arran Bird Atlas. The information is a snapshot in time of the birdlife of Arran and an illustration of some of island's wonderful wildlife. We hope that it will encourage more people to record their wildlife sightings so that we can all help to ensure it can be protected into the future."
Fiona Laing, Chairperson of the Arran Natural History Society

"The SOC has been delighted to be associated with this Atlas project, and I encourage anyone interested in the natural history of the beautiful island of Arran to buy a copy."
Chris McInerny, President of the Scottish Ornithologists’ Club

Angus Hogg, Member of the SBRC Scottish List Sub-committee and former bird recorder for Ayrshire
