BBRC have just posted an updated Work-in-Progress (WIP) file on their website at www.bbrc.org.uk/workinprogress.htm. It is an Excel spreadsheet of all sightings that are currently being assessed by the BBRC and will be the last WIP before the publication of their Rare Birds in Great Britain 2009 annual report, due in the October issue of British Birds.

This is your chance to check the details of any rare birds you found in 2009 before publication of the annual report.
