As a result of a compressed publication schedule, the Irish Rare Birds Committee has brought forward a change in the format of rare bird recording in Ireland for 2004 and henceforth, which will see the IRBC focus solely on rare bird recording. For this reason birders will note that only those species which are considered for assessment by the IRBC will be included in the report for 2004 and future years, making a departure from the Irish Bird Report to the Irish Rare Birds Report. The documentation of other species can best be accomplished by means of a separate publication.
