Sussex Bird Reports and other downloadable publications

Since 1948 a Sussex Bird Report has been produced annually. From 1962 onwards, these have been published by the Sussex Ornithological Society. Hitherto digital copies of the reports between 1948 and 2010 were available on a DVD but now all the reports up to 2017 are accessible on the society’s website.

Additionally there is a helpful index to all the ‘papers’ in the reports. Also included are the 1996 book The Birds of Sussex and the 1987 Birds in Sussex 1962-87, the latter published to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the society.

It is hoped that amateur and professional ornithologists, and indeed anyone with an interest in the wildlife of Sussex, will enjoy using this compilation, which serves as a testament to the dedication of many people in the county over nearly 70 years.
