We're looking for photos to include in the next Lothian Bird Report, which covers the year 2021, and is due to be published later in 2024. If you took bird photos in Lothian in 2021 and would like them to be considered for the report, please get in touch! Images can be submitted by

  • uploading them to the SOC gallery, making sure you tick the 'Grant SOC Permission' box. (If you'd rather not tick the box, please send a separate email to say that you're happy for your photos to be used in the report.)
  • sending them via a file transfer app such as DropBox or WeTransfer.
  • emailing them directly, provided the file size isn't excessive!
  • allowing us to download your photos from social media websites such as Twitter/X. (This is more time-consuming for us, and we might not have time to search through all of your photos.)

Emails should be sent to Stephen Hunter.

For each photo, please let us know the species, the month, and the location. While rarities are nice, we also need good photos of common species. Unfortunately we can't use every photo we receive.

Please send all contributions by 16th February 2024.

Thank you for your help!
