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.

Submitting Bird Sightings

Although the majority of bird records are submitted by members of the Buckinghamshire Bird Club, we are always pleased to receive records from other birders.  We ask that only records that are reliable are submitted.  Please indicate if there is any doubt over the identification or origin of an unusual species.  For certain scarce species within the county, you may be asked to supply written “field notes” before the record can be accepted as part of the official county records.  Forms to use for the submission of scarce and rare species can be downloaded on the Reporting Scarce and Rare Birds page.

Bird sightings should be submitted through the “Goingbirding” database that is linked with this website.  Goingbirding has been used since 2009 and contains a huge amount of bird records for Buckinghamshire and are accessible to everyone.
