Bird Sightings

Seen an interesting bird?  Then let us know by submitting a record on our on-line database.  It is easy to do but if you need some instructions take a look at the Submit Sightings Page.  To view the latest sightings just click on the menu item for Latest Sightings.

Some birds are not uncommon in other parts of the country or around our coasts, but may be in Buckinghamshire.  If you want to see just how scarce a particular species is then take a look at the Bucks List.

Database Information

Apart from the Sightings and the Photos sections, other data that users may want to access is as follows.  Click on the links to visit that page :-

  • Species – A list of all of the species in the Buckinghamshire Goingbirding database.  Alongside each species is a field that gives it relative abundance.  This field is used when users set the display filters (so only view species that are say “Scarce” through to “Very Rare”).  Also species that are set to “Scarce or rarer automatically post emails to the Bucksbirders email group and to the Buckbirdnews Twitter feed (unless  flagged sensitive or confidential).
  • Sites – A list of all of the sites in the database and the relevant map reference.  By clicking on the map reference a map showing the site is displayed.
  • Listing – Here anyone who wishes to publish there own lists may do so.  To view/edit the lists visit the Buckinghamshire Goingbirding Lists page.  The lists are not generated automatically so users have to manually edit these.  It is possible to create lists for :-
    • Bucks Life List
    • Bucks Year Lists
    • Patch Lists
