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.

Coronavirus – Bird Sightings

Many of you are continuing to post your bird sightings on the Buckinghamshire Goingbirding database and we would like you to continue to do this providing these are for birds seen from your home or as part of your permitted daily exercise (which should be fairly close to your home). In looking at the sightings being posted it is clear that the vast majority of you are doing that, which is good to see.

Please bear in mind that some people may still be tempted to travel to see a scarce bird and with many migrant birds arriving in the county there is a chance that you may find scarce bird in your garden or during your daily exercise. If you feel you have found a bird that might attract attention then please tick the “Confidential” box when submitting the sighting. The record will then show in the database in red and only be visible to yourself and the database administrators. The Confidential Box is shown below.

It is important to continue to post your sightings and these will eventually find their way into the Buckinghamshire Bird Club Monthly Bulletin and the Buckinghamshire Annual Report.

Thank you for you cooperation. Hopefully this might help in some way to stop the spread of this terrible virus.
