Disclaimers: Some of our sightings are reported by a single observer (who may or may not be known to us) and will not always have been corroborated. In all cases the observers name will accompany the report. We cannot always check the sightings directly and we have to rely on the experience of the observer. The Web Author retains the right not to publish some reports until further evidence has been submitted. In the case of major rarities the observer may be asked to submit a description to the county recorders.
Please note that this is just a local group website and it is just myself that keeps it updated. Although I would dearly love to add your sightings as they arrive, I am afraid that I work full time, this means that our sightings page can only get updated in the evenings or when I am on holiday. I have considered allowing a feedback form that writes straight to the page but have rejected this because we do get quite a number of spurious reports and I feel that this would only encourage this. I hope that you understand as our visitor reports are very much appreciated and read by a lot of people. Web Author.
