THE first issue of the new Wild Birds Magazine has appeared as a bi-monthly (until the paper ration increases) under the editorship of Mr. Eric Hardy and published from Friars Lodge, Friars Lane, Richmond, Surrey. There are illustrated articles dealing with bird-life at Manchester sewage farm (L. L. Turner), observations at the Yorkshire Naturalists' Union's new bird ringing and observation station at the Spurn by J. Lord, on a heronry (F. A. Lowe), birds of North Devon (N. V. Allen), Dungeness shingle (R. B. Burrowes), etc., while field notes include the first Lancashire record of the European bee-eater (Merops apiaster) in the autumn 1946, and the red-backed shrike using the same nesting site in two successive years. An abnormal immigration of waxwings and great grey shrikes into England during the recent winter is noted.
