For more than 10 years, Radnor Bird Blog has been offering birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts a place to report bird sightings in and around the county. When it was first set up in 2008, there was no regional site to report and record sightings in Radnorshire. Indeed bird blogs were only just coming into fashion, but since that time, the site has gone from strength to strength, with the clear aim of fostering and encouraging birdwatching and conservation as a whole in Mid Wales. It has helped build up a picture of birds resident in Radnorshire and migrants passing through, thanks to the support of a growing number of contributors.
Radnorshire boasts a rich diversity of wildlife, and while there is no estuarine or coastal habitat, there are many lakes, rivers, woods – both young and old – as well as moorland and heath. Believe it or not, well over 200 species of bird have been recorded in the county, and as the climate changes, we are seeing more and more rare visitors to this corner of Mid Wales.
In addition to sightings, you will find links to organisations and clubs working to conserve bird and other wildlife.
We hope you will contribute to this ‘blog’, by reporting your sightings, but above all, wildlife watching is about enjoying what nature has provided for us, and conserving it for future generations.
Reporting your sightings to the blog does not equate to a report to the County Recorder. We would ask that you give consideration to the birds and refrain from reporting nesting sites which may be abused by those not interested in the birds themselves, but their eggs.
