Search in birding magazines

Hi everyone,
After having in July launched the search engine to birding trip reports on the Internet, my brother and I are now ready to present the next step of the web site - something we have been working on for a few years now. It's a database making it possible for us birders to search for articles etc in back issues of our birding magazines and journals.
Too many magazines are simply collecting dust on the shelf although they contain a huge amount of valuable information. We have indexed all articles, notes, letters, reviews etc in some of the leading European and Scandinavian birding magazines – like Alula, Birding World, Birdwatch, British Birds, Dutch Birding, and those published by the Swedish and Danish Ornithological Societies.
Some have been indexed as far back as the early 1990īs whereas for a few we have started with the current volume. However, we are steadily working our way back through the earlier volumes.

You can search this new database at our web-site

We would be happy to get some feedback from you about this new search tool.

Best regards,

that's brilliant! To get such a resource for free is fantastic. Only the other day I spent ages looking for a reference in British Birds (which hadn't been indexed for some reason). Keep up the great work.
