County Listing


Last updated 29th October 2018

The Leicestershire & Rutland list currently stands at 323 (314 since 1941, when LROS was formed). Latest addition: Barred Warbler. All lists are as submitted by the observers concerned, should only include species on local Categories A & C (see County checklist), and be based on current BOURC taxonomy.

Since most people seem happy to count 'heard only' records (e.g. Great Reed Warbler, Golden Oriole, Quail etc) on their county lists, for comparative purposes I have included these (where I know about them) for everyone, whether or not they count them on their own personal lists.

We would like to make this list as complete as possible - anyone not included is welcome to send their total (and updates please) to birdnews@lros.org.uk. There is no 'qualifying level' for inclusion, nor is it in any way a competition, or meant to be at all serious, or indeed important. If you want to have your list included here, please send it in, but if not, no-one's going to force you!

NB - as with other pages on this website, your ISP may cache an older version of the page; please click 'refresh' or press F5 on your keyboard a few times to make sure you are seeing the latest version.
