Guidelines for Reporting Rarities and Submission of Annual Records
Detailed records of nationally or locally rare species (guidance on these is here) should be sent to the County Recorder Rob Jones (goweros10@gmail.com) as soon as possible after the sighting. An appropriate description should be provided of the species, your previous experience of it (and similar species), the circumstances and weather conditions in which the sighting occurred and any other pertinent information (such as photos). He will then circulate to the local or national records committee as relevant.

Day to day observations, including of nest sites, flocks of birds and species of local interest, should be collated in the Annual Record Form and sent to Rob as an email attachment following each calendar year. Receiving these by the end of January is ideal as an early start can then be made on compiling the annual report.

Hi Stephen. What was the colour of the ring please? (I assume black lettering – please say if not)

A few sightings from Pennard Cliffs made on 10 November 2021 – single Swallow seen flying over West Cliff, followed soon after by the first Fieldfare sighting here ( 2 individuals). Around 50 Redwings seen after dawn in small groups. A few Skylarks continue to move overhead daily. There is an unusually large number of Blackbirds and Song Thrushes still present here on the cliffs. A group of 11 Choughs were seen late afternoon heading towards East Cliff. No sign of the Little Bunting.

I caught and ringed a a Little Bunting in my garden on Pennard Cliffs this morning. It was the last bird of an otherwise very disappointing ringing session.

0845 Wednesday: two little grebes on Broad Pool. They surfaced just alongside the road as I drove past. (At sunrise I could hear geese on Broad Pool but not see them because of mist.)
