Latest issue:

The annual Arran Bird Report is a "must" for anyone interested in the birds of Arran. It includes information on all species seen on Arran, a month by month summary of what was around in 2020, information on ringed birds, and reports on some of Arran's bird projects. For the first time the report is in full colour and is beautifully illustrated with photographs from twenty-six photographers. The uniqueness of Arran is reflected throughout the report, including the number of UK protected birds that share our island with us, as well as the differences between here and the adjacent mainland.
