The main item is the systematic list covering sightings in 2021 in the Avon area. Apart from the usual reports, there are three papers as follows. The first, by Lincoln Garland, describes the birdlife seen along the river Avon through Bath showing that even in a busy city birds can thrive. The second by Richard Clarke describes the fate of a single Short-eared Owl along the Welsh side of the Severn Estuary, so although not strictly about Avon’s birds it clearly shows the trials and tribulations that our birds face daily. The third by Rich Mielcarek describes the changes, with both gains and losses, to the Avon list this century. As usual, there are the reports from the AWBS, BBS and ringing activities.
