Topic: Common names for birds
I note that following one of the recent dictionary updates the preferred common names for birds have reverted to the long-winded versions ('Eurasian' this and 'Western' that) once again, and not the ones that people actually use and the ones used in the official British List. Is this a conscious decision or has this come about 'accidentally' during work on the species dictionary? I know this first happened in R6 many moons ago and after a number of queries the preferred names reverted back to the ones that everyone uses. Could someone perhaps explain what has happened and if there are any plans to change this.
