The Kent Bird List

The county bird list stands at 416 species. This list includes all species that have been recorded in Kent and have been accepted by the KOS Editorial & Records Committee and where applicable the British Birds Rarities Committee and BOURC. Those with a tick should easily be seen at the right time of the year and at the right location. Over a hundred in one day is quite possible in Kent personally I have seen 99 in one day in May. The record I believe is 150.
