Article summary

The present report deals with the data examined by the CH for the period 1998-2001. Inorder to accelerate the publication, the CH has chosen to publish separetly the data which have to be submitted in Belgium outside the Flemish region. Indeed, these records not being published by the Belgisch Avifaunistisch Homologatiecomité (BAHC), their publication, by the CH and without concertation with the BAHC, is possible within a shorter period of time. The entire set of data herebelow have been processed by the CH. As in our last report (SELOSSE & the CH, 2002) taxonomy and systematic order follow the CSNA (Commissie Dwaalgasten Nederlandse Avifauna), as presented by van DEN BERG & BOSMAN (1999). The list of vernacular names follows the "Commission de l'Avifaune Française" (CAF), as presented in the Inventory of French Birds (DUBOIS et al., 2000). The name of every species is followed by an informative note put in brackets. These notes refer to the number of individuals which have been accepted by the CH in the region where these species have to homologated. Species belonging to "Cat. II" have to be submitted everywhere in Wallonia and the Brussels Region. Species belonging to "Cat. V" have to be submitted in Belgium only on the East side of Meuse river. The first number in brackets corresponds to the number of individuals of the species which have been accepted by the Ch between the creation of the CH in 1964 and the end of 1997, in the aforementioned zone. The 4 following numbers are respectively the number of individuals of the species which have been accepted by the CH in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. During this period 1998-2001, the Little Egret confirms its progression with 14 individuals recorded for the year 2001 alone. Highlights include 1 Great Skua for each of the years 1998, 1999 and 2000 while the only previously accepted record in Wallonia is from 1978. The bird caught on 23 August 1998 at Hotton was very weak and was released 8 days later on the Belgian coast. Rough-legged Buzzard remains a scarse and irregular visitor in our regions, with one mention in 1999 and 3 mentions in 2000. Finally, a Shag, ringed as a pullus on 29 June 2000 on the Isle of May, was present on 14-15 January at Péronnes-les-Antoing.
