Birding Scotland is a non-profit making subscription journal which aims to cater for the Scottish birding scene, providing a comprehensive look at the occurrence of migrants and rare birds in Scotland and coverage of all other aspects of birding in Scotland. Notes on identification and rarity finding are included along with in-depth articles designed to enhance and encourage birding in all regions of Scotland. We hope to promote countrywide communication and keep subscribers in touch with the Scottish birding scene by publishing topical articles, news, views, reviews and sightings as well as a range of other regular features.
Birding Scotland is a 48-page, A5, quarterly publication with full-colour front and back cover plus at least eight pages of full-colour inside, used for a mix of photographs and illustrations. There are also numerous black & white photos and line drawings. 2004 is our seventh year of publication and sees the addition of a further eight pages per issue in the form of Birding Scotland Extra. BSE is published as a Newsletter to cover topics of a more current nature (meetings/conferences etc) or which do not merit reproduction at the higher quality print standard of the main magazine (e.g. the info on back-issues in BSE-1). It will also feature details of new websites, items for sale both new and 2nd-hand, and any other topical items.
