Bucks Sightings

Submission via Website

Submissions of sightings may be made directly to this website via the "Latest Bucks Sightings" page.  Any records submitted in this way are immediately available for other birders to view (but see Note below) and any sightings of "scarce" birds are emailed to members of the Bucksbirders email group.

Records submitted in this way are automatically made available to the Club Recorder and the County Recorders.  Therefore it is not necessary for records to be submitted to the recorders at the month/year end.
