Birds

This section is in development, and will include various pages in the near future. In the meantime, a full checklist of all species recorded in the Filey recording area can be found below (updated January 2014).

The Filey Bird List

Both the English names and scientific names are used, and the species order reflects the latest official British official list as published by the BOU online (The British List, 14 January 2013).

The BOURC continues to publish English vernacular names in current usage in its updated British Lists. As these are most familiar to British birders, we use them here.

All rare and unusual species have been submitted to the British Birds Rarities Committee and/or Yorkshire Naturalists’ Union Ornithological Section Reports Committee and are entered here subject to acceptance by those bodies. In addition, local rarities are only included following receipt of an acceptable written record. BBRC, YNU and FBOG description rarities are indicated by these acronyms after the species’ name.

Status summaries are given for all species and indicate frequency since the inception of FBOG in mid-1976. For many scarcer species the annual number of records is given for the last 5 years (2009-2013). For uncommon or rarer species the total number of records is given up to the end of 2013, with pre-1977 (pre-FBOG) records in parentheses. The definition of a record is an individual bird, so a flock of 11 birds is considered as 11 records for instance. The first known record for each species is also noted.

Vagrant: 10 records or fewer
Rare: 25 records or fewer
Scarce: 100 records or fewer
Uncommon: 20 records or fewer annually
Fairly common: 200 records or fewer annually
Common: 2000 records or fewer annually
Abundant: more than 2000 records per year

[For most species, maximum day-totals are noted for future reference; where the maximum is pre-FBOG, both the pre-FBOG and FBOG maximums are given in these cases]
