Welcome to the GRC Recorders pages. This blog provides details on all the relevant news of Glamorgan’s scarcer birds, plus all BBRC & WRP decisions that affect us locally. It will also be used to document the status and occurrence of these scarcer species and we welcome contributions from anyone with photographs, artwork or documentation of rarities past, present and future. The GRC also welcomes all seawatching news from around Glamorgan and news of passage migrants in spring & autumn, uncommon birds in our area and unusual behaviour.
All visitors are welcome. You must first register by sending an email to GlamRC@gmail.com before you can contribute. An invite will be sent to your email address. Blog content will be strictly moderated. Access to pages and downloads are available to everyone. All photographs on this blog remain the property of the originator.

The Glamorgan Rarities Committee, in conjunction with the Glamorgan Bird Club & Gower Wildlife , have agreed to co-operate with the Welsh Ornithological Society in the sharing of bird records & photographs in the interest of keeping accurate records and to promote birdwatching in North, Mid & South Wales.

1 Year Old Today!
In its first full month this Blog generated viewing totals that were roughly 3,150 this has steadily increased over the year and last month the viewing figures produce a blog high of almost 6,300.
One of the main reasons why this Blog works is due to the vast amount of work that David Gilmore and Barry Stewart do in the background. The various lists and reports are products of their tireless work, collecting and subsequently presenting the interesting information into manageable tabloid style sections.
The other reason why it has been so popular is in no small part down to the authors of this Blog that keep the news up to date and provide some breathtaking photos along the way.
I'm looking forward to following this Blog for more years to come and offer sincere thanks to all of the contributors that make it work. Lastly, thanks to all readers for providing the motivation that drives our contributors to produce such high standards.
