Rarities in NI

The NIRBC assesses and publishes information on rarities in Northern Ireland. You can see more information at: https://nirbc.blogspot.co.uk/
 
The NIRBC Rarities Committee (NIRBC) consists of the following members:

Secretary: Ian Graham
NI Bird Recorder: George Gordon
Committee Members: Oscar Campbell, Chris Murphy, Neal Warnock and Wilton Farrelly.

Advice from experts are also taken to assist with rarities assessment.

NIRBC welcomes submissions from any observer of any rare species observed in Northern Ireland requiring a description before they are admitted to the official record. We endeavour to circulate and assess records rapidly and consistently and will publish decisions here in a timely manner. However, we can only work with the information that we receive so please submit supporting evidence for your own finds and, if you have observed a bird listed here that is flagged as lacking supporting information for assessment, please consider providing evidence yourself so that the record can be added to the official record.

You can submit supporting information, pictures or weblinks on any of these, at any time to the email address: nibarc@live.com or via the website: https://nirbc.blogspot.co.uk/

We also welcome submissions of evidence from any observers who seen any rarities, even if you were not the original finder. Please therefore feel free to provide any information and contribute to the record database for NI:
