In Bull. ABC 1: 39-48, John Fanshawe reviewed the state of the African birding community in 1994, the year of the ABC launch. The present compilation aims to update ABC members on bird recorders and checklist compilers for all of the countries covered within the ABC region (see Bull. ABC 1:12). Updates can be sent to the address at the foot of the article or by e-mail to email@example.com. We urge all ABC members to submit records or trip reports from any visits, future or past, to the region to the relevant recorders in order that the information can be utilised, and not remain 'buried' in observers' notebooks.
Note. Country recorders can be found on this website on the contacts pages for each African country.
