Reporting your birds records

I encourage everyone to submit their bird records to the Hellenic Ornithological Society. You can also submit your records via OrnithoTopos which is an Internet-based spatial database about birds, their science and their distribution, that allows users from anywhere in the world to input and query Greek bird data.

For Lesvos breeding records and local rarities, details should be sent to the Lesvos Bird Records Committee. See their website for the species and records they would like submitted to them.

For rare species, these should be submitted to the Hellenic Rarities Committee (Greek equivelant of BBRC). Check the HRC website for species it covers.

The Hellenic (Greek) Rarities Committee was founded in 2004 and the HRC has already published three annual reports which are available online -

HRC report for 2005

HRC report for 2006

HRC report for 2007

HRC are in the process of re-organizing our archives, especially the photo material, and we would like to ask for assistance regarding photos of rare species in Greece. If you are aware of such photos, not appearing on the HRC website gallery, we would appreciate if you informed us of their existence and the way to obtain them (URL of website or email of phorographer). We are interested even in the oldest photos.

The full list of the rare species for Greece can be seen here.

HRC would like to thank all those who have already submitted their records of rare birds seen in Greece.

Please do not hesitate to ask for any clarification on birds@ornithologiki.gr or hellenicbirds@yahoo.gr

Good birding.

HRC Secretary
