Ref. acceptance and use of records posted on this website. I have yet to discuss this with the County Orn Committee, but I would envisage that most records would be acceptable without the need for confirmation at the year end. We would, of course, request written field details for County & UK rarities (see List in Annual Bird Reports), in the usual way. Also we reserve the right to reject records outright if, frankly, too unbelievable!
