“Bird of Prey and Pollution” reports (1980-1997) now available

Work on pollutants and birds of prey, based  on samples sent in to what is now called the Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme (PBMS), was originally described in annual “Bird of Prey and Pollution” reports.  Until recently, the earliest report on our website dated back to 1998.  We have recently scanned the series of earlier reports dating back to 1980.

The work described in these reports focussed largely on the contamination of birds of prey with organochlorine pesticides and contaminants.  The reports contain both a description of the findings and also the original data.  In all, our downloadable reports span nearly a 40 year period.” The reports can now be downloaded at https://pbms.ceh.ac.uk/content/pbms-reports
