The major part of the 2017 report is taken up with the Systematic list, covering the 250 species recorded in the county during the year. The book also contains regular papers including the Review of the Year and the Ringing Report and various appendices.
There are four main papers, covering changes in Hampshire’s breeding birds 1750-2017, the Stone-curlew in Hampshire, breeding warblers at Fishlake Meadows and the 2017 survey of Corn Bunting breeding in Hampshire. There are short papers reporting on the county’s first Elegant Tern and Lesser Scaup. There is also a short Note on Grants for projects made in 2017.
