I am writing to let you know that NSW ORAC now has a website which can
be accessed at www.nsworac.org/
The website includes
a comprehensive Index of Cases which includes all NSW reports that have been
submitted to NSW ORAC and BARC both accepted and not accepted, and also
includes known reports of rare species for which no submission was made. Most
of these latter reports are shown at the end of the Index of Cases as not
confirmed/not assessed but some have case numbers since, in the early days of
NSW ORAC, case numbers were sometimes assigned when a sighting was claimed but
which was not followed up with a submission. The Index of Cases can be searched
by species names, dates, sites, etc and there is also a downloadable PDF
The latest revision
of the NSW ORAC Review List is on the site as a PDF file and the URR Form is on
the site as a downloadable Word document which can be used to prepare
submissions to the committee.
We hope that this
site will be a useful resource for the NSW birding community and, if you have
any questions concerning the site and its content, please let me know.
I would like to
acknowledge and thank Greg McLachlan and David James for the considerable time
and effort that they inputted into the production of the website – it is
very much appreciated.
Secretary NSW ORAC
