A mysterious crossbill found in Glen Doll, Angus needs your help HERE.
Only serious crossbill boffins need apply, no timewasters please.
ICRAP ( The International Crossbill Research Analysis Program ) requests that participants refrain from using non standard and unsubstantiated terminology such as "glip", "british", "phantom" etc otherwise the following loxia subgroups will also be considered:
The "Fitlikemin" - of Aberdeenshire.
The "Yehoorsir" - found in the Lomond Hill plantations of Fife.
The "Ehlleatmehpeh" - specific to the Fintry hills outside Dundee.
The "WeeFree" - only found on the Outer Hebrides in irruption years.
The "Ganzee" - present on Shetland and Fair Isle in irruption years.
The "Wherzabizees" - only found in the plantations of Merseyside.
The "Gitorfmoiland" - of Dorset and Devon.
The "Buckie" - the resident Crossbill type of SW Scotland, also recently recorded in the Manchester area.
Thank you. You have been warned.
