The AVICULTURAL MAGAZINE welcomes articles and news items from both members and non-members (no payment is made). These can be about any aspect of aviculture, conservation or natural history concerning non-domesticated bird species that are likely to be of interest to aviculturists. Articles submitted for publication should preferably not have been published elsewhere and should ideally be written in English, although translation is possible. Scientific as well as vernacular bird names should be given, and references cited in the text should be listed at the end of the article. Material can be sent as an email attachment to editor@avisoc.co.uk and can be accepted in most common file formats. Files on disk and typed or handwritten manuscripts are also accepted.

The primitive streak for this avicultural resource developed from the initiative of Dave Coles more than forty years ago. It was he, who, with a small group of colleagues within the Avicultural Society, collated from related short lists some extensive annual and, for good measure, secondary lists of UK breeding records of foreign birds achieved by members of the AS and some public collections.

In the formative years, publicity gained through the avicultural press and literature soon brought results and queries from UK-wide bird breeders into Dave’s card-index system. On two occasions since that time, during which the internet and more besides has opened up communications and for some manoeuvres overtaken card-index systems, he has privately printed what is commonly known within UK avicultural parlance as Dave Coles’ First UK Breeding Records. \n 2011 Dave brought in the internationally respected aviculturist Simon Matthews to nurture the records.

Throughout its burgeoning existence, the input of knowledge of a first UK breeding has depended upon the eyes and ears of the administrator and - and this is really crucial for recent records - the willingness of breeders to volunteer their successes. Such breeders, in both private circumstances and public collections, are acknowledged for sharing information of their avicultural milestone achievements.

The major change in this documentation is that the order and nomenclature of species now follow the internationally recognised standard for avian nomenclature of Gill, F & D Donsker (Eds), 2017, IOC World Bird List (v 7.3). doi: 10.14344/IOC.ML.73.

This is not the first time I am again greatly indebted to Dave Coles for honouring me with a labour of love; on this occasion it is to demolish and re-style a timely up-date of his First UK Breeding Records, formally known as FIRST BREEDING RECORDS FOR BIRDS REARED TO INDEPENDENCE UNDER CONTROLLED CONDITIONS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM.

Reuben B Girling Mount Hawke, Cornwall 23 December 2017



It is requested that information detailing a new first UK breeding should be e-mailed to the Secretary of the Avicultural Society; kateatwell@googlemail.com.

Also sought is clarification of the uncertainties in the current text, especially that of dates, breeders, reference sources and, from the eagle-eyed, typographical errors.

Responding to this request will greatly assist in compiling and maintaining the currency and accuracy of this unique avicultural record. Thank you!

Whilst the common names of species used are almost entirely those within the afore-mentioned [OC World Bird List, the common names of a few species have been chosen to follow UK-English avicultural parlance.

As a singular example, that actually covers several species, some ‘Parrots’ are here named as ‘Conures’. It is hoped the overall nomenclature is beneficial to the UK readership.
