The objective of this page is to keep everyone, locals and visitors, up to date with what birds are about. It is therefore dependent on everyone contacting me as quickly as possible to ensure I can update the site so that others benefit from the observations. In the case of rarer species details would also be passed on to the Highland Recorder John Poyner (firstname.lastname@example.org) who may require a full description before the record was accepted. This website will very much be locally focused but some records will be included in the SOC Highland website www.highlandbirds.scot. and may also reach national sites.
We have discretion as to what information is added to these pages and will try to avoid unconfirmed reports, or details which might reveal breeding sites of vulnerable species. It is impossible to record everything reported and for the more regularly observed species, we would encourage the use of BTO 'Birdtrack'. Records published on the site are submitted to 'Birdtrack'. You can search for individual species using the facility below.
