The County Recorder

From January 1st 2014 the county recorder is

Michael Colquhoun

Old Gore House,

Old Gore,

Ross on Wye,

Herefordshire HR9 7QT.

Mob 07587151627


For county or national rarities, or other urgent matters please contact the county recorder as soon as possible by phone or email. 

In common with many other county bird societies, from 2014 the county recorder is assisted by a data manager who collates many of the records, (both electronic and paper) for entry on to the BirdTrack database. The data manager from 1st January 2014 is Chris Robinson.

To report a bird to the county recorder please complete the County Rarities form. Go to the page and follow File > print or use the print menu (ctrl P for PC, cmd P for Mac) and post to the county recorder. Alternatively, send the same information by email. This is not necessary if your data is entered directly to BirdTrack as the recorder is notified automatically in the case of a rarity.
