During the course of two years of bird population counts at Sandvis (previously also known as Sandwich Harbour) from July 1970 to June 1972 it was possible to compile a systematic list of the species. In addition, confirmed sightings made by visitors to the area since 1968 have been included as well as revious records by rozesky and Dixon over a eriod 1959-1970. To date the number of species recorded is 113 and represents an exceptionaIly wide taxonomic variety when the isolated nature of the area is taken into account.
