At its meeting on 12 October 2020, the following decisions were made regarding the HK List.

Additions to Cat I and II

Kloss's Leaf Warbler Phylloscopus ogilviegranti based on records at Tai Po Kau on 16 March 2017, Pak Sha O on 5 January 2019 and 1 February 2020, and Lau Shui Heung and Tai Po Kau later in the same winter.

Chinese Grey Shrike Lanius sphenocercus: one at Tam Kon Chau on at least 5 November 2019.

White-faced Plover Charadrius dealbatus, based on the new taxonomic treatment adopted by IOC v10.2.

The following species were added to Cat III: Asian Fairy-bluebird Irena puella (Jordan Valley on 17 December 2019) and Racket-tailed Treepie Crypsirina temia (Long Valley on 20 March 2019 and subsequently at Mai Po).

In addition, the first record of Blue-and-white Flycatcher Cyanoptila cyanomelana intermedia was accepted.

A small number of changes to English and scientific names have been included in the latest issue of the IOC List (v10.2), and these will be incorporated into the new issue of the HK List early in the new year. The HK List currently stands at 562 species.
