    BOU TSC disbanded

    It's forward to the past for the genera of Gulls, Wood-warblers and Finches, at least, if BOU adopt Birdlife taxonomy. I wonder if BBRC will automatically follow the BOU if Birdlife taxonomy is the norm?

    BOU TSC disbanded

    Hello Richard I know the following does not affect the British List...If say either Clements or IOC is adopted the number of Macaronesian Shearwaters in the totals seen in Britain is going to be decimated. Incidentally I'm making HBW/Birdlife International...

    Long staying rarities

    James...You were right that the possibility of west African race of Little Tern had held the record up.This was dismissed after recordings of the west African subspecies had been obtained.On the House Crow, this could be an extreme stayer.

    Long staying rarities

    James...The Least tern at Rye Harbour was accepted but only as a subspecies of Little Tern. The BOURC-TSC being, I think, isolated in their view, among taxonomic authorities, as not accepting antillarum as a species.

    Spanish Sparrow Spanish Sparrow at Waterside, Cumbria from July 1996 to December 1998.Surely one of the longer, continuous-staying passerine vagrants.
