Gibraltar Bird List

 

Gibraltar Bird List

 

This list gives all the 325 species known to have occurred in Gibraltar, with the exception of those represented only in the fossil record.

The list of birds has been officially adopted by the European Union (for its EU Bird List).

The taxonomy and sequence follows the IOC World Bird List. The local status of each species is summarised briefly. The terms used, both here and in the annual Gibraltar Bird Reports, have the following definitions;

                                      Vagrant: Exceptional at any time in southern Iberia (including Gibraltar), e.g. Allen’s Gallinule.

                                      Local Vagrant: Exceptional in Gibraltar but not unusual in southern Spain, e.g. Wood Pigeon

                                      Rare: Seldom recorded in Gibraltar or anywhere in southern Spain, e.g. Alpine Chough and Fieldfare.

                                      Occasional: Seen infrequently and not annually e.g. Common Cuckoo.

                                      Regular: Annual in small numbers. e.g. Red-necked Nightjar.

                                      Common: Annual and sometimes numerous, e.g. Black Redstart.

 

Status Categories (Codes)

                                     The Status Categories (Codes) are those used for the British and other national lists.

  • A  Recorded in an apparently natural state at least once since 1st January 1950.

  • B  Recorded in an apparently natural state but not since 31st December 1949.

  • C  Introduced by man or derived from introduced populations elsewhere.

  • D  As A or B but possibly ship-assisted, escaped or released.

                                     Updated with new species and revised nomenclature.  (15/02/2024).
