The CAWOS Bird Report for 2022 has now been published.  The report is the product of a team of people working together to develop the content through to the final print.  The report is in full colour with around 94 photographs.  The front cover is the Penduline Tit at Woolston Eyes.

The report has 157 pages and draws on over 225,000 records from various sources including Birdtrack, BTO, major site reports, website records, ringing reports and, of course, records from individual observers.  This publication is the only document to bring all these records together on a County basis.

The county list now stands at 368 with the addition of White-winged Plover and Pallid Swift.  Also included in the report are articles on the White-throated Sparrow in Cheshire, the bumper year at Woolston Eyes with Penduline Tit, White-tailed Plover and Ferruginous Duck, Pallid Swift at Hoylake and an article on Eastern Chiffchaffs.  There is the usual detailed listing of Early and Late Dates for Migrants and the BTO Online Ringing Report for Cheshire and Wirral in 2022.
