Please send any bird notes with your news including “what, when, where” to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . All contributions are welcome. I am not just interested in rare or unusual birds, but common birds: where there are significant numbers of common birds, which birds come to the garden at different times of the year, where breeding birds have been seen, when our summer or winter visitors have arrived or departed, and what sightings have given individuals particular pleasure. Your support ensures that the basis of the annual Arran Bird Report is as comprehensive as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you.
