A List of National and County Rarities Recorded in Christchurch Harbour Since 1956
When the county boundaries were re-drawn in 1974, the CHOG recording area became part of Dorset, having previously been within Hampshire. The rather bizarre situation now exists of Hampshire having discarded all records for the area and Dorset not taking them up. Consequently, there are a number of "lost" records, despite them having BBRC or County acceptance, including what would be Dorset's first Citine Wagtail.
