No's 901 & above

Roberts 850 to 887 Return to Index

Roberts Numbers 925 and above are provisional numbers for the Roberts VII birds not
 included in the earlier editions.  These include splits, a new bird and recently
sighted vagrants.  This also applies to the numbers 901 to 924.
  It is likely that the numbering system will change with the new version.
