Review List

The current Victorian Review list consists of species and subspecies that are vagrant or rare in the state of Victoria that are not covered by the National BARC review. For species on the BARC review list a BARC submission should be submitted. If any of the species on the below list are recorded in Victoria the committee is keen to see a submission.

In addition any species not on the current Victorian list and not covered by BARC should be submitted for review. This list is a work in progress and will be refined over time.
