Working for birds in Africa

Third report of the Seychelles Bird Records Committee.

p 170-177

Seychelles Bird Records Committee, formed in 1992, publishes reports at intervals of five years. This report summarises all accepted records of vagrants (species recorded less than annually) to 31 December 2005. Changes in status of species on the Seychelles list since 2000 are noted. Two species previously classed as vagrants have been reclassified as annual and one other is now considered as annual in the Aldabra group. Sixteen vagrant species have been added to the Seychelles list since publication of the previous report. Including these changes the number of species recorded in Seychelles at 31 December 2005 is 239. All species of less than annual occurrence are listed giving the number of accepted records plus islands and months recorded. Twenty two groups of indeterminate records worthy of note are given. Two vagrant subspecies are also listed. Full details of species recorded for the first time since publication of the previous report are given.
