Recent RC decisions

Given the acceptance of a Northern Goshawk into Category 1, are there any plans for review of old records, for instance the apparent influx of 1988-89, when I saw three: at Tai Po Kau in early December, Lai Chi Wo in very late December and Lam Tsuen Valley (with RWL and MDW) in late Jan? Neither of the first two were single observer birds either, and all were very safely identifiable as Northern - the first two were observed perched allowing coloration and patterning, including of the head to be easily seen, and the Lam Tsuen bird was observed as it flew over the valley mobbed by Large-billed Crows, leaving no doubts as to its massive size for an accipter, and all other key features were also noted.
