Just to update anyone interested, the new 'Birds of Durham' book will be available at two places this coming weekend: Whitburn CP - Saturday 10am to 12pm. (next to the ringing hut, north end of coastal park) Rainton Meadows - Sunday 12pm to 2pm. (at visitor centre)
To confirm, the sale of the book is intended to be non-profit making for Durham Bird Club. As the book was only possible due to a grant from the Heritage Lottery, all profits will go back into community/heritage projects involving birds/birding in the county of Durham.
Please send me your home address (via PM) as Mark Newsome (DBC county recorder) has very kindly offered to deliver a copy to you.
Dug I had arranged to pick a copy up for you but as Mark will deliver to your house and it will save me the initial £30 fork out I'll let him do the honours. Make sure he signs it as one of the main contributors he may be famous one day.
