Details of rare species should be sent in as soon as possible after the sighting. The correct etiquette for rarity reporting is to submit the completed form, in the first instance, to the county recorder.

National rarities: Are dealt with by the British Birds Rarities Committee (BBRC). A list of current rare species and rare races can be found on www.bbrc.org.uk

Scottish Rarities: Are dealt with by the Scottish Birds Records Committee (SBRC). They adjudicate on records of birds that are rare in Scottish terms. Species for which SBRC require a description are listed below. See the attached PDF file SBRC-species-2017.pdf

Local Rarities: Are dealt with by the Outer Hebrides Records Committee. For a list of species considered to be local rarities please see the attached PDF file OHRC-List-2018.pdf
