SEEN IN THE LIZARD AREA

Purple Sandpiper
Purple Sandpiper - a Lowestoft speciality - İAndrew Easton

Here's the updated list of birds recorded in the Lounge Lizard area. Category D and escaped species have now been added at the bottom of the page. The eagle-eyed may spot one or two or..... species that are not recorded in other avifaunas. These were either not accepted by the relevant Rarities Committees or not formally submitted. We would like to stress that this list is not intended to be authoritative just simply to document the species recorded locally by reliable lounge dwelling ornithologists!!!
