In the full species list (which will be published here later) you will
find those species that require a full written report or those that are
in interest of the local recorder, SPEA-Madeira.

The useful mailinglist
Do you know that SPEA has a free e-mail service with ornithological news
from Portugal (including Madeira + Azores)? The service is called "Noticiario
SPEA" and is sent out to subscribers (at no cost) once a week, more
or less. If you wish to subscribe, just send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the word "subscrever" on the subject line. This very same
address can be used to send in any records (including rarities and all
sorts of oddities or just interesting stuff, such as uncommon migrants,
etc.). The service is in Portuguese, but we think that the relevant information
can be easily understood even if you don't read Portuguese.
