Subject: URF Records for 2012 HK Bird Report [Print This Page] Author: wgeoff Time: 20/09/2013 07:38 Subject: URF Records for 2012 HK Bird Report
The Records Committee has completed assessment of 131 URFs for the 2012 HK Bird Report with a further 9 still in process. As a result, we expect to publish the 2012 Report in January 2014. The results of the URF assessments are included in this Excel File
The File gives current HK List numbers, species name, date of record, location, name on URF, decision on URF and comment. Decision on URF may be
Accept – accepted as a Category I or II record, sometimes with a comment. All these records will appear in the 2012 HK Bird Report
Accept Cat III – identity accepted, but as a Category III record, possible ex-captive. These records will also appear in the 2012 HK Bird Report, mainly in the Category III section
Not Proven – not accepted. ‘Not Proven’ does not mean the record is incorrect, it only means that the evidence provided does not prove the record beyond reasonable doubt.
The name on the URF is not necessarily the finder’s name. Also some members may be surprised to find their name on a record. This is because the record has been taken off the website using photographs and other details submitted there. Also some of the names are those used on the website, where the individual’s actual name is not known.
If you have any comments on your records, wish to add anything or correct mistakes, tell me your real name or anything else, please contact me on my email address
