Bird records 2001

 
Selected Waterford bird records 2001
 
Bird records listed below, mostly relating to scarce migrants, were submitted by the website compilers to the Irish Bird Report.  Note that coverage was poor, partly related to foot-and-mouth-disease restrictions, and records from other observers are not fully represented.  Any further records from 2001 or other years would be welcome.
 
* = species on the list considered by the Irish Rare Birds Committee @1 January 2001 (record pending unless noted as "accepted" by the IRBC).
