    BOU TSC disbanded

    Has Birdlife taxonomy just been updated? If so how would how would latest changes effect a British list if this was chosen by BOU? Heard some stories regarding Shrikes,Redpolls etc but not clear on what would change.

    Paphos revisited....April 11th-18th 2015

    Good report Ken - can I ask if you had any early morning access to the archeological site at Paphos headland as this was a bit of an issue during my visit at Easter last year?

    Birding in Cyprus this spring?

    Try driving up to the mast at Anarita from Aspro Dam there were a couple of pairs just inside the perimeter fence last year that showed very well last year-also good area for Spectacled Warbler and Great Spotted Cuckoo.

    Hi can anyone direct me to the best place to view/ access Shotwick boating lake-I have only seen it from the main road which is not really a good place to stop and look from..

    Archeological site Paphos Headland

    Yes they were working on that stretch last time I was there but hadn't reached the corner where I used to sneek through most mornings.Hopefully if you get a ticket you can still get it stamped to allow multiple admissions for birding purposes?

    Archeological site Paphos Headland

    I'm off to holiday in Cyprus for 2 weeks this weekend and was wondering if anyone knows if it is still possible to access the Archeological park early morning through any gaps in fence-I'm guessing not as when I was there 2 years ago they were in the process of renewing the perimeter fencing.

    Eyebrowed Thrush in Norolk

    Nothing on RBA regarding this report can anyone shed any light on where BGs got this mornings info? Are we dealing with wrong id such as maybe Redwing or is this a gen record being hushed up-someone must know something?...

    Rock or House Sparrow???

    With only one UK record of Rock Sparrow(seen in North Norfolk by a couple of Britains top birders)you should be realising that your chances of getting one in your garden are as close to zero as makes no difference..sorry mate but once you accept this it will make your bird ID skills much more...

    My word! Honey Buzzards...

    Yes its surprisingly how little interest this has provoked on here-I assume that these are birds migrating from Scandinavia that have been drifted further west than there normal route by the prevailing conditions...Malc
