The WMBC publishes an Annual Report on the birds of the four Counties of the West Midland region. This has been published every year since 1934, originally under the name of the Birmingham Bird Club.
The Annual Report is free to members.
(Other Club publications are listed in our Bibliography.)
1930s | 1940s | 1950s | 1960s | 1970s | 1980s | 1990s | 2000s
A complete run of reports may be viewed in the Local Studies section (floor 6) of Birmingham Central Library .
We include here, a selection of articles from early reports. We wonder what their authors would have thought, had they been able to see how one day their words would be available, globally, by electronic means.)
Edgbaston Reservoir (formerly known as Rotton Park Reservoir):
Gailey & Bellfields 1935 (Bellfields was the former name of Belvide)
West Bromwich Area 1949 (includes Swan Pool)

More will follow!
