Here's my tuppence worth.

I welcome discipline at the most senior systems for accepting records of rarities. Why? Because it helps more locally too.

Why does that matter? Because integrity in recording endangered species is vital to justifying claims for special treatment of particular sites.

I can remember one British field guide (I think it was a general naturalist one) which had an example of a good set of field notes of a rare bird. I wish more guides included those.
