Robben Island, Western Cape, is an Important Bird Area because it provides breeding habitat for several threatened marine and coastal species. The island's first comprehensive bird list was assembled in 2000, but since that time 21 new species have been recorded on the island and breeding has been confirmed for five species for the first time. This paper provides an updated list of all 164 species that have occurred on the island and notes on the status of the 1 that have been seen since 1 January 2000.
