Bird Sightings

Seen an interesting bird?  Then let us know by submitting a record on our on-line database.  It is easy to do but if you need some instructions take a look at the Submit Sightings Page.  To view the latest sightings just click on the menu item for Latest Sightings.

Some birds are not uncommon in other parts of the country or around our coasts, but may be in Buckinghamshire.  If you want to see just how scarce a particular species is then take a look at the Bucks List.

Nightingale Recording

Sadly this species is is now extremely scarce in the county.  The recent stronghold at the MOD site at Arncott has not recorded any this year.  Fortunately one did turn up at another mid Bucks site and Bill Parker managed to obtain this excellent recording.

This photo of a recently fledged Nightingale was taken by Paul Watts at Arncott in 2012 when there were 4-5 singing males..

Let us hope that the species has a better showing in 2018 but the trend is not looking good.
