Birdwatch Magazine

July 2024 • Spring 2024 will live long in the memory for British and Irish birders for its incredible run of extremely rare birds – and you can read exclusive finder’s accounts of Britain’s first Indian Golden Oriole and the Booted Eagle in Cornwall in the latest issue of Birdwatch, which is out now. • This month’s magazine is jam-packed with top content including an in-depth look at one of the English south coast’s most famous migration watchpoints, Dungeness Bird Observatory, and some of the speciality birds it delivers – Pomarine Skua and Short-toed Treecreeper to name just two. • With waders beginning to move back south, late summer is the perfect time to enhance your shorebird identification skills. In this issue, Mark Golley introduces the ‘L3 challenge’. Mark’s expert knowledge will be sure to help you separate the similar Continental and Icelandic forms of Black-tailed Godwit, both of which are possible on your patch at this time of year. • Also in this month’s magazine, Josh Jones examines the recent upturn in frequency of British Caspian Tern records and explores why this might be happening. There’s also a profile on Green Sandpiper, with a four-decade-long study into the species having revealed many fascinating insights, such as where birds wintering in England go to breed, favoured habitats and much more. • Seabirds also feature prominently in this issue, with Luke Nash taking a closer look at some of the frustrating encounters with rarities that have got away and are still awaiting admission to the British and Irish lists, while Bob Flood reports back on an epic adventure in the east Pacific between Chile and Panama.

Birdwatch Magazine

I look forward to each issue, love reading it. Reviewed 18 June 2020

Brilliant.... But!

This magazine app is excellent apart from a few teething problems the 'pocket mag' group appear to be having. The content & additional videos are worth it alone however, downloading & reopening the magazine on my ipad2 has been a problem... It has froze & failed to download on two separate occasions. An email to pocketmag quickly resolved the issue. A future 5star set up im sure once these minor issues have been resolved fully.... Reviewed 18 January 2013
