Welcome to the sightings section:
Photographs and Video Footage

BUFORA's photographic head specialist, Mark Easen, will be away on holiday from Sunday 23rd July 2023 until 14th August, therefore there will be no photographic evaluation conducted until after 14th August.

If there are any images considered to need urgent attention, please contact BUFORA enquiries, and please remember that no evaluation can be carried out without completing the BUFORA Sighting Report Form on our website, because we require full supporting information with any photographs/video footage.

Thank you
Heather Dixon

As a very busy  voluntary organisation, BUFORA would appreciate it if all members of the public reporting a sighting, photograph or video footage, please complete, in detail, the BUFORA online sighting report form.

BUFORA do not  evaluate photographs or video footage without full supporting information by completing the BUFORA sighting form.  Please note, we also require a donation to our organisation of £5 prior to any image evaluation.

In addition, please do not just complete the enquiry form for sighting reports, because you will always be asked to complete the online BUFORA sighting form.

Thank you.
