Record submission

We need your records

It is important that we keep as complete a record as possible of the birds that occur in our area, both as resident breeders or passage migrants and also the rare and scarce birds that occur from time to time. The pages within this menu group explain in detail how to record your observations and what to record.

It is important to note that observations of rare and scarce birds should be notified to the Glamorgan Rarities Committee [GRC], who will decide which authority needs to consider the record and its validity. Nowadays this is a much simpler task in most cases due to the now very common use of digital photography to record such observations. The GRC have a blog { Glamorgan Rarities Committee } which is informative, although at present it is in a rather static state and somewhat out of date.

For info, the Glamorgan Rarities Committee comprises:
