A few bits and bobs recently puts me on 114 species, just one behind this time last year - some more-or-less bankers remain and still time for a late run out of the bottom half of the table in this high-scoring year. Highlight was Red-necked Grebe on Saturday - just my second for the patch and coming just two days short of the seventh anniversary of the first.
And then there's the Feral Pigeon issue - I decided to take a principled hard line this year and not count any that seemed to come from the pigeon loft. Was starting to panic a bit that I might miss out so have counted a couple of birds flying distantly over the old Tarbothill Landfill site - probably as good as any of this year's Peregrine records anyway!
