  CHRONOLOGY  1960 to 2011

 

    The purpose of the Chronology is to plot some of the development and changes in the Club.    A proper history of the Club would pay due regard to all the hard work of  many individuals, which sadly is largely taken for granted.    For starters there are all the people who have, and are, serving as Officers of the Club.     Then there is the massive contribution  made by members of the Records Sub-Committee in producing the annual bird report.    More recently, the Conservation Sub-Committee works very hard dealing with planning matters to protect the diminishing habitat.   The work to produce the Newsletter and to maintain the Website also requires a significant effort.    There are other unsung heroes that have made contributions.   Most of these contributors do not get mentioned in this short summary.

 

1958        In September Graham Bell produced the  first monthly edition of the “Teesmouth

                Ornithologists` Bulletin”.     In  November the Bulletin became the “Teesmouth Bird Report”,  

                Number 3.

1959        Seawatching started in the autumn from the “Observatory” (rented from the Kayak Club) on

                Hartlepool Headland. 

                The discovery on 12th December of  Britain`s second Dusky Thrush by 14-year old  Russell 

                McAndrew and Geoff Proctor, on Hartlepool Headland, led to Cleveland`s first national twitch.

1960        In May a Committee was formed, consisting of  Graham Bell, Dennis Seaward, Philip Stead,

                Ian Stewart, and Denis Summers-Smith to consider “unusual” records.  A meeting was held in 

                November in the Nelson Room at the Dorman Memorial Museum to form the Teesmouth

                Bird Club.     About 30 people attended, of which 9 were aged 13-15; 16 were aged 20 or less   

                and  classified as Juniors.    Subs were set at £1 for adults and ten shillings (50p) for  Juniors.

                The 30 Founder Members were:-    P J Stead, J D Summers-Smith, A L Cooper, D G Bell,

                D R Seaward, I F Stewart, B J Coates, R T McAndrew, P Reid, P L Hogg, J A Bailey,

                J V Henderson, Ken Baldridge, Chris Bielby, Vic Brown, Peter Dent, Peter Evans,

                Peter Harland, David Laing, Robert Lightfoot, J S McIntyre, Ian McKinlay, Richard

                McKinlay, Geoff Proctor, Martin Sidgwick, Ken Smith, Margaret Summers-Smith,

                Brian Unwin, Alan Vittery and Tony Vittery.

1961        The first meeting of the Teesmouth Bird Club was held in January at the Billingham

                Technical College. The speaker was Ralph Chislett, who compiled the ornithological

                reports  for the whole of Yorkshire, which were published by the Yorkshire Naturalists`

                Union.  The speaker for the second meeting in February 1960 was Ken Williamson.    He

                had been appointed as the first Director cum Warden at the observatory at Fair Island,

                where he introduced more rigorous recording of biometric details by ringers.  He went on

                to become Migration Officer of the BTO and then took over the Common Bird Census.   

 

1963        12, 000 Egg-Collecting leaflets distributed..   4000 Leaflets about  the Air Guns and Shot Guns

                Act 1962 distributed locally.   County Trusts and ornithological clubs in other parts of the

                country also bought copies..  Club observation hut erected at  Dormans Pool.    Membership

                increased from 71 to 84, of which 36 are Juniors.     20 active Bird Wardens resulted in the

               

1964       The amended Constitution required new members to be proposed and seconded..   

               Members were to receive the Teesmouth Bird Report.  (A copy of any earlier Constitution

               

1965        First edition off  “Birds of  Teesmouth” published;  by the time the 8th edition was published in 

                1977,   7000 copies had been sold.   The “Evening Gazette”, which helped to produce the

                series, published an article and a weekly series of drawings and notes. The film “The

                Birds of Teesmouth,” taken over the last five years by Dr. J.S.C.Monro, was shown at the

                Middlesbrough Little Theatre on 1st

1966         First edition off  “The Natural History of Teesmouth” published:  by the time the 5th edition was 

                 published in March 1973  4000 copies had been sold. .  Open Day on the “Obs” displayed at 

                 Town Hall, Hartlepool.   “Birds of 

1968         Graham Bell passes on compilation off  Bird Report, and Recordership to Ian Stewart.    

                 Permission given for Old Watch Room to be used as an Observatory at South Gare.  (It was

                

1969         “Birds of Tees-side 1962-67” published..   Club meetings moved to the YMCA at Stockton,   

                 A joint film show was held in September with RSPB at Billingham Forum.    All seats sold: as  

                 well as at Middlesbrough, Darlington, Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham.                               

                 In November two terrapin huts provided by the CEGB were erected adjacent to the Hartlepool

                 Power Station, and  were in use by February 1970.

1970         The Teesmouth Field Centre was officially openedd  on 23rd October.

1971         Subscriptions increased by 50%.    Membership 331 with average attendance at meetings of 

                 135.    Constitution amended to create the post of Vice-Chairman.   

                 The CEGB leased the Teesmouth Field Centre to the Club.  By 1976 visitor numbers to the

                 Centre had risen to over 8,300.    This development was due to the devotion of much time by

                 about 20 Club members.   The work load had become so great that the first Warden/Tutor

                 (Miss Lynne Chapman) was appointed in February 1977.    Norman Sills appointed RSPB

                  Warden for Cowpen  Marsh (to 1973).

1972         Weekend and day trips had already been established, but two local evening outings were 

                 successfully introduced.    357 members.

1973         Philip Stead elected as the Club`s first Honorary Member.   A Club Dinner was held but it was 

                 felt to be a too formal event.    THPA announced plans to reclaim the remaining part of Seal   

                 Sands.    Richard Wakely  appointed RSPB Warden for Cowpen Marsh (to 1977):  he is mainly 

                 remembered for his work at the Teesmouth Field Centre.

1974         Agreed at the AGM that the Bird Report will become an annual report and would be free to 

                 members.  Five members gave their telephone numbers to provide news on what was about.  

                 (The Grape Vine did not start until 1980)

                 Cleveland RSPB Group founded in November with 63 households signing up.

1975         Membership  at 383 proved to be a peak in the century, with 41 Juniors, and  attendances 

                 at meetings at about 170 on most occasions. (They averaged 150 in 1973.)    Two buses were 

                 required for the 90 people on the Solway weekend.

1976         Membership at 376;  the 34 Juniors continued  the evident decline.   Attendances at Meetings 

                 peaked at about 175.

1977         Barn Owl, Corn Bunting and Goldfinch chosen as the special species for study.  A new exhibit 

                 about Dormans Pool, Reclamation Pond and Seal Sands at North Tees  was seen by thousands            

                 on four open nights.   The Club Open Day held at the Field Centre was an outstanding success, 

                 following publicity by the Evening Gazette after publication of the 8th edition of the “Birds of 

                 Teesmouth”.    Chris Sharp became the Junior Rep on the Committee.

1978         “Birds of Tees-side 1968-73” published.  Subs raised from £2.50 to £5 (Juniors £1 to £2.50)  

                 and a capitation fee of £2 per family requested, in view of the poor state of the Club`s finances.

1979         Graham Bell elected an Honorary Member.   Club registered as a Charity.   Buffet Supper was 

                 a great success when held in June instead of in the Winter.    Formation of the Cleveland 

                 Nature Conservation Trust leads to the Club acting in a supportive role, instead of lead role on 

                 local conservation matters.    Chris Sharp became Subscription Secretary, a position he still 

                 holds.

1980          Subs increased to £6 (£3 for Juniors).  Slightly fewer members on excursions.  The five 

                  evening excursions averaged 15.    Field Centre celebrated its 10th anniversary in October.    

                  Informal meetings started at the Ladle Hotel in June.

1981          Resignation of Angela Cooper as Secretary, who was elected an Honorary Member at the 

                  celebration of the Club`s 21st birthday in December at the YMCA.

1982          CNCT takes over land formerly managed by the RSPB.    Long-toed Stint at Saltholme puts 

                  Cleveland on the birdwatching map.   Over the 21 years of the Club 1200 people had been 

                  members at one time.   13 of the original 58 members in1961 still remain.    Subs increased 

                  from £6 to £6.50 (Juniors still at £3).    Death of Edgar Gatenby (1923-1982), one of the most 

                  respected and well-loved of North-east birdwatchers, who was always willing to share his

                  encyclopaedic  knowledge of birds.

1983          A winter feeding sub-committee formed to obtain food for distribution in adverse weather 

                  conditions.   Car access to Long Drag stopped.    Hon. Treasurer  Don Page introduced a Deed  

                  of Covenant for subscriptions which was to make a significant contribution to Club funds.

1984          Club meetings moved to the Golden Eagle, Thornaby.   The Licence for the Field Centre was 

                  transferred from the Club to the CNCT

1985          The Edgar Gatenby Memorial Hide, Greatham Creek officially opened on 21st April.  (It was 

                  moved to the Elementis site in 1998)  The first Bird Race on 18th May clocked up 116 species.   

                  A Bird Study Group was formed to monitor and record the status of  all species of breeding 

                  birds in Cleveland.    Club meetings moved to the Billingham Arms: informals were also held 

                  there.   The first article on birding hotspots in Cleveland covered Seal Sands, Greatham  

                  Creek, and the Long Drag Pools.

1986          The outing to North Northumberland on 9th February clocked up 91 species.  A slight increase 

                  in membership is attributed to an article about the Club in the new “Birdwatching” magazine.

1987          Informals held at the Middlesbrough Municipal Golf Club. 

1988          Attendances at meetings at Billingham Arms averaged 100, informals 25-30;  evening      

                  excursions poorly attended.

1989          Double-crested Cormorant at Charlton`s Pond.   Bird Race on 13th May achieved a new record 

                  of  132 species.   First tape-luring of Storm Petrels on 8th August.                                           

                  The Cleveland INCA  (Industry & Nature Conservation Association) was registered on

                  9th February.    This first INCA in the country had its roots in an initiative by Founder

                  Member Alan Vittery 

1990          Club struggling for sufficient members to make excursions viable..   Subs raised to £7.50

                 

1991          Announcement of an £11m nature reserve at Saltholme.. 

1992          J. Denis Summers-Smith was elected an Honorary Member..     Denis had served on the 

                  Records Committee since 1960, and had served as Treasurer and Chairman, and continued on 

                  “Records” to the 1999 Report.   The Bird Report for 1992 was the first to contain

                  photographs, in black-and-white, colour photographs following in the report for

                  1995.      Also in the 1992 Report Ringing Officer Wilf Norman reported that he  had

                  computerised the county ringing records from 1974.    Wilf served as Ringing Officer for

                  

1993          Sad demise of Club excursions.

1994          Subs raised to £9 and £4.50 for Juniors.    Rita Dunnett was elected an Honorary Member, 

                  after serving as Secretary since 1981.

1995          New editorial team for the Newsletter under Mike Gee.   Copy welcome on 3.5” computer 

                  disc.   First reference to use of  CB.   Later in the year the Great Spotted Cuckoo was put on 

                  the nation`s pagers.   Jane Reid won the senior section of the “Young Ornithologist of 1995”.   

1996          The “County of Cleveland Bird Report”  became the “Cleveland Bird Report”  and the Paul 

                  Nicholas drawing on the cover was replaced with a photograph of a bird from the current

                  year.

1997          Newsletter starts to give news from the Committee.    Membership reaches its nadir with 207 

                  and 2 Juniors.   Committee started measures to expand membership.  It was proposed to make 

                  new members more welcome, to produce a poster and an introductory pack.   15 members 

                  offered to act as mentors to new or inexperienced members.  Formal minutes were to be kept 

                  of the AGM in 1998.

1998          First articles arrived by e-mail for the Newsletter, which could now be downloaded from the 

                  World Wide Web.   Photos and sketches now scanned .   First Tioxide sponsored birdwatch - 

                  20 members found 83 species on the 10th May.      Graeme Joynt, Russell McAndrew and  

                  Mike Gee were commissioned by the Committee to devise a scheme for a Census, and later in 

                  the year a pilot scheme was agreed for 1999.   Seven members paid tributes to the late Jeff 

                  Youngs in Newsletter No 11.

1999              A computer was to be bought for the Recorder.   The pilot study for the Breeding Birds of 

                  Cleveland was successfully completed.    First year of the Club without any  Junior Members.

2000          Retirement of Don Page, the Club`s longest serving officer, after 25 years as the Hon 

                  Treasurer.    There were 121 tetrads left to complete the Breeding Birds survey.

2001          Attendance at meetings had fallen to an average of 35.    Application made to fill in the 

                  Reclamation Pond.    Proposed to e-mail Newsletters to members in the future.    Don Page

                  elected an Honorary Member.

2002          Jeff Youngs hide constructed and officially opened on 6th September.   Club introduces its own

                  website – previously it was “attached” to the Watson Press site.   First Huntsman sponsored

                  birdwatch.     Club increasingly involved in various schemes such as the Teesside Nature 

                  Reserve, Portrack Marsh, Crookfoot Reservoir, and farmland birds.   

2003          Proposed  Windfarm offshore of the Tees.  “Birds of  Teesmouth” film transferred to DVD 

                  (but not available from Teesmouth Field Centre until about 2007).   Death of Founder Member 

                  Ian Stewart who led memorable trips to the Solway.    Subs raised to £10, £5 for Juniors.

2004          Disabled access to the Jeff Youngs hide completed.   Under chairman Ted Parker a Five-Year 

                  Plan was launched, two new Sub-Committees set up (Conservation, and Marketing and 

                  Membership), revisions made to the Constitution, and a much more proactive stance taken on 

                  harmful developments.    This latter eventually resulted in the Club becoming virtually a 

                  statutory consultee with regard to planning.   Although the membership was gradually rising 

                  after the nadir in 1997 the increases henceforth became more sustained.    Sadly the Club was 

                  evicted from the Hartlepool Observatory after 45 years.   Due to the work of Eric James and 

                  Rob Little the drastically improved website was praised by  “Birdwatch”  in March.

2005          Death of Founder Member Philip Stead.     E-mailing of bird sightings to the Club website 

                  became possible.    Launch of  the Cleveland Water Body Survey.   Ted Parker took over from 

                  Mike Gee as editor of the Newsletter.   The first of the occasional profile of Club

                  members featured Dave Simpson.   Members Questionnaire circulated and results published..   

                  Rob Little resigned after 28 years on the Records Sub-Committee.    A Project Team formed to

                  progress the production of “The Breeding Birds of Cleveland” book.  Club purchased a Digital 

                  Projector.  Very favourable review of the 2004 Bird Report in “Birdwatch”.   Re-launch of 

                  local outings with a walk round Seaton Snook and North Gare on the 28th August, led by

                  Chris Sharp..   About this time Ted Parker started taking new members round birdwatching

                  sites in Cleveland.

                  The Cleveland Bird Report for 2005 was the first with over 100 pages.  This reflects the

                  enormous effort required to produce the annual report which has grown from the 35 pages of

                  the first annual report for 1974.

2006          Jamie Duffie took over the management of the website and made significant improvements, 

                  including a Photo Gallery.  The Bird Race on 5th May clocked up a record 152 species.   

                  Membership climbed back above 300 to 317.    The Breeding Birds fieldwork was completed

                  and Ted Parker`s huge efforts had secured sponsorship to cover the entire production costs.   

                  Tony Marron elected an Honorary  Member.   Subs were raised to £12, and £10 for the

                  concessionary rate.

2007          Club meetings moved to Stockton Library.    Club awarded Landfill Tax Credit for a Habitat                     

                  Management study of Dormans Pool.     Cull of Ruddy Ducks.   First sod cut at RSPB 

                  Saltholme, to which Club officials were invited..   Funding approved for a feasibility study for 

                  a new sea-watching observatory at Hartlepool Headland.   Club became a Corporate Member 

                  of INCA.   Legal Ageement  signed with Impetus Reclamation Ltd granting access to

                  Dormans and the Reclamation Pond for the next five years.   Two new Club posters produced

                  and car stickers and bespoke clothing now available.  Membership increased further to 375.

                  Kate Humble, the TV personality and RSPB President, performed the ground-

                  breaking ceremony for the new reserve at Saltholme on 3rd

2008          “The Breeding Birds of Cleveland” was published in November..   Arrangements initiated to

                  celebrate the Club`s 50th Anniversary in November 2010.    Membership exceeded 400 for the

                  first time in the Club`s history to reach 421. 

2009          At the AGM chairman Alistair McLee presented the new Five-Year Plan for 2009- 2014.     

                  A Club outing to North Northumberland on the 15th February was the first for many years.   

                  Due to proposed refurbishment of Stockton Library, Club meetings were moved to the 

                  Ebsworth Building on the Stockton Campus of Durham University.   Membership continued to 

                  rocket, to 487, having put on 200 in the last 4 years and seems likely to reach 500 for the 50th

                  Anniversary.

                  The RSPB/Teesside Environmental Trust reserve at Saltholme was opened on 21st

                  January, with the official opening by Kate Humble on 6th

2010          12-yr old Harry Murphy joined the Club in May as the first Junior Member since 1998.

                  Sadly, Founder Secretary Angela Cooper and stalwart Frank Dunn died during the year.    

                  Funding was obtained for the provision of a hide at RSPB Saltholme as a memorial to founder

                  member, Philip Stead.  Club meetings moved back to Stockton Library, the refurbishment

                  appearing to be postponed for some time.    91 members, a record for the location, attended the 

                  first meeting of the season in September.   As part of the Club`s move towards practical 

                  conservation work, a group  of members erected nest boxes for owls at Scaling Dam 

                  Reservoir.    The Club published the booklet “Birdwatchers of Teesmouth 1600 to 1960”.    A

                  party was held at the Riverside Stadium on the 26th November to celebrate the Club`s 50th  

                  Anniversary.   

                  Discussions were held on the implementation of a system for the electronic submission of 

                  records for the Annual Report, and on the transfer of previous paper records to an electronic

                  format.   The feasibility study for a sea-watching observatory next to the Heugh lighthouse 

                  was completed:  now all we need to do is to raise the money.  Membership rose to 521.

2011         The Phil Stead Hide was finally installed at RSPB Saltholme, as a result of huge efforts by

                 Chairman Alistair McLee.    It was officially opened by Phil Stead`s daughter, Judith

                 Bless on 4th June.     Unfortunately Phil`s widow, Anne, died a few days before she was

                 due to perform the opening on 23rd April. (See Newsletter 48 and 49 for further details.)

                 As a result of worsening economic circumstances, budgets have come under severe strain.

                 The Chairman has, therefore, been developing a scheme for a hide at Hartlepool Heugh

                 based on a Cleveland Sitesafe structure as used for the Phil Stead Hide.

                 The Tees Valley Wildlife Trust announced a new nature reserve at Hummersea due to a

                 generous bequest by the late Angela Cooper.    Unfortunately the major part of the

                 Reclamation Pond was filled in, with the remainder expected to be filled earlier than

                 expected.                                                                                                                                      

                 By the end of the year members were able to submit records electronically due mainly to          

                 the hard work by Neil Lay.

                  The nest boxes erected by members at Scaling Dam in 2010 led to early success with the

                 raising of a family of tawny owls.     Eric James held a well-received workshop on waders

                  in November at Saltholme, which it is hoped will be the first in a regular series.

                  Local outings became increasingly popular, with up to 35 attending.    By the year-end

                 details of 27 birdwatching sites had been posted on the Club website.     The sightings

                 pages on the website continued to be popular with members and non-members.
