Birds of Brent Reservoir

In 2002 the WHCG published a book, Birds of Brent Reservoir: The natural history of the Welsh Harp, edited by Leo Batten, Roy Beddard, John Colmans and Andrew Self. Copies are still available and can be obtained from Andrew Haynes (andrewhaynes [AT] at a cost of £12 a copy. All proceeds from sales of the book go towards conservation management work at the reservoir.

Since publication of the book, Andrew Self has prepared a supplement, Birds of Brent Reservoir: Facts and Figures, which expands and updates the book’s information on the birds recorded at the reservoir. Now in its fourth edition (2018), the supplement is available free of charge in PDF format here:
