Channel Islands bird list (1 Viewer)


New member
The updated (to December 2011) Channel Islands bird list is now available. The new list includes an island by island checklist at the end and shows a new total of 369 species: 326 in Jersey; 324 in Guernsey; 283 in Alderney; 226 in Sark. There were two new species added to the list in 2011: pallid harrier in Jersey and olive-backed pipit in Guernsey. Black-headed wagtail was also recorded for the first time and was seen in Jersey and Guernsey. There were several further firsts for a single island: short-toed eagle, buff-breasted sandpiper and solitary sandpiper (all Jersey) and one new breeding species (firecrest in Jersey). Common buzzard bred in Guernsey for the first time.

The new list can be downloaded from our birding websites: www.jerseybirds.co.uk and www.guernseybirds.org.gg
