The preparation of the annual Dorset Bird Report is a complex process involving over 180,000 eBird and BirdTrack records in addition to other sources including location reports from across the region. The production team strives for 100 percent accuracy in compiling records, writing species reports and creating final documents.
Unfortunately, several errors occurred in the preparation of print-ready copies of the 2020 report. They were only revealed after the report was printed and circulated. It is understandable that the production team is very disappointed that this error has infiltrated and detracted from what we consider to be a very good report. We understand how the error occurred and will take action to ensure it does not happen again.
