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.

Uploading Photos

Anyone who has registered in the Buckinghamshire Goingbirding database can upload photographs.  Feel free to upload record shots as well as good quality images.  Record shots are useful for rare and scarce species and may help in terms of confirmation of species ID.

There are a few rules and guidelines :-

  • The file size may not be larger than 100KBytes
  • The width of the image may not be more than 600 pixels
  • Photos should be of wild birds within the county of Buckinghamshire

The file size and width of the image can be controlled using one of many image editing tools that are available.  A free software package that deals with both of these functions is the Faststone Image Viewer and is available at this link

Please note that the Buckinghamshire Bird Club reserves the right to delete any of the uploaded images and to use any of the images in the clubs monthly bulletin or the county annual report.
