Information page of the LBRC County Rarities

County Rarities

Species considered rare at county level are dealt with by the Lincolnshire Bird Records Committee. The committee currently comprises Graham Catley, Phil Hyde, Dean Nicholson, James Siddle and Andy Sims.  The secretary is Roy Harvey.

Please send all details and descriptions of any LRBC species to Roy Harvey; roy.harvey100@btinternet.com.

All records of LRBC species should be submitted as soon as possible after the sighting and not left until the end of each year. County rarities accepted by the LBRC will be published in the report together with the initials of the finder/identifier.
The verification of the data that appears in the annual report is essential to the production of an accurate and meaningful report. A systematic approach to the verification of ALL rare bird records, no matter who has reported them, prior to the production of the annual report is required before they are published.

From time to time the LBRC will reserve the right to seek additional details of other records deemed exceptional by virtue of, for example, date, location, or number. The list of birds considered by this committee and the level of proof needed is subject to regular review as, indeed, is the membership of the LBRC.
