Please note that Red Kite and Great Spotted Woodpecker have been removed from Appendix 2. Sightings of these species will no longer be recorded in the monthly Provisional List after December 31, 2010.
These changes are the third set of revisions to be applied to the Appendices since the IRBC changed its method of record submission and assessment in January 2005. For a full account of the background and reasons for the new reporting system click here. The IRBC will continue to periodically review the list of species included in both lists.
The second set of changes made to the Appendices are described here
