Our journal, Birds in Wales, is published twice each year (January/February and September/October), and in addition we publish the Scarce and Rare Birds in Wales on behalf of the Welsh Birds Rarities Committee (November). Journals and reports published within the last two years (2018 – 2019) are available on this page. All publications earlier than this are now stored digitally in the Biodiversity Heritage Library, where they are fully searchable. You will need a pdf viewer to access the files.

You can download the full index, which contains links to the relevant sections of the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

You can also download back numbers of our E-newsletters here.

Minutes of Council meetings and Annual General Meetings, and annual accounts are published in our archive.
