Suffolk Bird Report – editor needed


The Suffolk Bird Report has been the key summary of birds in Suffolk for many decades.  Since 1979 it has been a separate SNS publication, and a large number of photographers, artists and writers have contributed over the years.  There is an established team of section writers working under the direction of Nick Mason, the current editor.   Over the last nine years, Nick has done a fantastic editing job and has also ensured that the report has landed on people’s doormats in time for Christmas every year.  For many of us I suspect it is a more eagerly awaited parcel than those waiting under the tree, and we all owe Nick a big thank you for his hard work in recent years.

Nick has however decided to step down as editor at the end of 2017, and we are therefore looking for a new volunteer editor.  This is a rare opportunity to work closely with Nick during 2017 in order to produce the Suffolk Birds 2016 report, learning editing skills as well as getting to know more Suffolk birders and birds.


Without an editor, the Suffolk Birds 2016 report may be the last of its kind.  So if you, or anyone you know, is interested in taking over the role of editor, please contact .
