newFrom 1.1.2017 no records of Larus cachinnans will be included in the website. The species has proven to be regular and it is no longer consider a national rarity. Indeed, there are more cachinanns that L.delawarensis records. Sightings of the rest of species 'ex-rarities' are variable from one year to another, offer some id challenges or are of overall interest, and hence they will be featured in the website as in 2016 for the sake of completeness. Phylloscopus inornatus is still included to better understand the apparent changes in its pattern of occurrence including wintering records, despite the tremendous amount of birds recorded in 2016. If the national Rarities Committee includes any other new species in the rarities list, this will be featured in this website as well.
