Welcome to the website of the ELBF
Mike Dent got the group going in August 1997 as a forum for local birders to network more easily and to accumulate data on the local avifauna and most importantly to promote the importance of local patch birding. It has evolved somewhat over the last ten years with the creation of our website and our continued involvement in local events and surveys. We have become the information hub for this area but rely on your records and photos to keep things fresh and up to date.
