To find out more about the birdlife that has been using the Bristol and surrounding areas each year, we help produce a book called the Avon Bird Report. It includes a systematic list of the species seen during the year, and a report on the local weather. It also has fascinating articles about local birds and their populations. The Avon breeding bird survey has been included in every report since 1994 and the Avon ringing report in every report since 1996. 

Copies of the report for most years are still available. For details contact Dr H E Rose via email at . The Avon Bird Report is co-funded by the Bristol Ornithological Club and the Bristol Naturalists’ Society. It is organised by the Avon Ornithological Group and profiles of each species are compiled by club members and other birders in the region.
