These include Edward Hart, who built up an extensive skin collection, and Canning Suffern, who encouraged the Portsmouth Group of young birders to begin systematic bird recording on the Hampshire coast. We have an extensive programme of walks throughout the year, plus monthly meetings ( 2nd Wednesday each month) in Lyndhurst Village Hall.

Chichester Harbour Conservancy is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty comprising 11sq miles of water and 11sq miles of land with 17 miles of well marked and lighted channels which, with its easy access to the Solent, makes it an ideal water recreation centre. All significant birdwatching areas in the region are analysed under the headings 'Habitat', 'Timing', 'Sites', Access' and 'Calendar', providing all the information necessary to make the most of each and every trip, whatever the time of year. The route starts from the station car park (the terminus of the Watercress Line heritage steam railway) and crosses the town to join the riverside path along the pretty River Alre. Key information is given on the habitat of each site, the birds likely to be seen there, season by season, with tips on the best time to go for maximum enjoyment.

The chosen definition of a rare bird includes any species assessed by BBRC since its formation in 1958, one that has occurred in Hampshire on fewer than 200 occasions and one that has not occurred annually in the twenty-first century. I think the chances of a captive-bred bird not having a ring or clipped wings as a sub-adult must be low and I imagine such a bird would be used to grain feeding.

The county has been fortunate to retain habitats which are increasingly rare in southern Britain - lowland heaths, chalk grasslands, ancient woodlands and unspoilt estuaries. The former includes species such as Masked Booby Sula dactylatra (2007) and Lesser Spotted Eagle Clanga pomarina (2001) , neither of which has yet made it to the British List, and a probable Sharp-tailed Sandpiper Calidris acuminata misidentified as a Pectoral Sandpiper Calidris melanotos (1969).A revised edition of the systematic list of the birds of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight originally published in 1963.
