SEVERAL READERS have suggested that we publish a list of the names and addresses of the county bird recorders and editors. Those who are collating records for special analyses often need such a list and sometimes they approach the wrong persons or else follow the only other list of this kind, the British Trust for Ornithology's Regional Representatives, but the latter are already overworked and, in any case, are often not the people to contact for county records. The coin has another side, too, in that many observers on holiday away from their home areas have no idea to whom they should send their records. Consequently, we believe that the periodic publication of a list of this kind would be of value to observers, recorders and collators alike. The list which follows is as up-to-date as possible in that we have written to each county to check the name and address of the current recorder. Several counties are divided into areas for recording purposes, but the list includes one name only for each county for reasons of space and because we believe it is less confusing, but observers already knowing the names of area recorders in any county should continue to submit records to them. Titles of publications are added only when they do not include the names of the county or counties concerned.Bedfordshire M. D. Wortley, 5 5 Ninesprings Way, Hitchin, Hertfordshire Berkshire J. W.
