Search the Sightings Database

Welcome to La Société Guernesiaise's ornithological database

Use the links on the left to make your queries and click search to view the results in this page. The database contains records from the following sources:

All vagrants and all records pre-1969
These have been collated by Mark Lawlor, the current Bird Recorder, and are complete as far as we know.

Records 1969-1992
These records were manually extracted by Geoff Atkinson from the printed version of the 'Guernsey Bird News', which has been collated monthly. Only the scarcer migrants and vagrants were extracted.

Records 1992 to present day
These cover all species and are entered monthly on to the database. Records come from individual observers who fill out record cards and these get entered by Mike Bairds who manages the database.
