This is a list over my own findings in Hordaland. In norwegian these are called edelkryss.
I only list those birds that are considered by rarities committees and only the first find. Birds have to be found and identified by myself. Most of them have been seen by others as well,  Radde's and Barred Warbler being the only exceptions as they are seen by myself only.
All are accepted by the local rarities committee (LRSK) or the national rarities committee (NSKF).
