SOS Downloadable Publications
From this page you can access digital versions of a variety of publications produced by the Sussex Ornithological Society.
Be aware that some of these files are very large and may, depending on the speed of your internet connection, take several minutes to download and view.
Please note also that the three most recent Sussex Bird Reports are not available online.
This file contains a listing of the papers which have been published in the Sussex Bird Reports (1962-2021). Searching for key words, like a species name, should provide the whereabouts of the published papers.
Via this button you can view/download Sussex Bird Reports dating from 1948 onwards. Some of the earlier reports need to be rotated so that you can read them comfortably. This can be done either by viewing them in the browser, or by downloading the report and rotating it using Adobe Acrobat.
