The Dorset Records Panel (DRP) is responsible for the assessment of all records of rare & scarce bird taxa in Dorset on behalf of the Dorset Bird Club.

Rarity records are reviewed by panel members with a wide range of knowledge and experience, maintaining a rigorous approach to recording standards and ensuring scientific integrity for the future.
