LANDGUARD BIRD LIST

 

This is a list of species recorded at Landguard Point, Suffolk. Where more than one race has been recorded this is included. Several other species involve more than one race passing through the site but this is so far unproven. Scientific & English names plus the order they are in are constantly changing, the English ones used below should be familiar to most people & the scientific ones should hopefully be the current ones in use. All of these species have been recorded since Landguard Bird Observatory was founded in 1983 except Chough (1888), Lark Sparrow (30/06/1981 to 08/07/1981) & Bahama Pintail (30/09/1982).
