As most of you will know the British Ornithologists' Union (BOU) has announced that as of today (January 1st 2018) it will follow the International Ornithological Congress (IOC) World Bird List for taxonomic decisions, including all species on the British list. As the Yorkshire Listers League has always adhered to BOU taxonomic decisions this will have some implications to Yorkshire listers. It is our intention to update the Yorkshire listers league list very soon and this will be made available to you in the usual way so as you can update your list accordingly. We will also publish a brief explanation of the main changes that currently affect the Yorkshire list. - Watch this space!
