No 3. Ornithology in Cumbria in the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries: A Bibliography.

No 1. Inventory of Urban Gull Colonies in Cumbria

The past fifty or so years have seen a dramatic increase in the numbers of Lesser Black-backed Gulls and Herring Gulls breeding in urban areas in Cumbria. Great Black-backed Gulls have also taken to breeding in built-up areas but in much smaller numbers. To the end of the 2015 breeding season a total of 45 urban gull colonies had been identified in the county. This short report provides an inventory of these colonies, together with an indication of their current size, nesting habitat, and, where known, their date of formation. NEW REVISION NOW AVAILABLE.

No. 2 Pug Moths of Lancashire and Cumbria

Brian Hancock provides an extremely useful guide to the locally resident species of a group of moths that can provide some identification challenges to recorders; the pug moths. With the helpful aid of annotated images, maps and graphs, each of the 42 species is given an individual account detailing identification, distribution, status, flight period and food plants. There are also tips on how and where a recorder might find the more uncommon species and references to some of the most significant records.

Interesting article - the only record of the Cerambyx Cerdo in Cumbria was caught and put into the collection @TullieHouse in 1900 by FH Day. CBDC are interested to receive Grass snake records - most records are in the South Cumbria. https://t.co/WSGE814iX1
