Ferdelance, thanks for the congratulations and for all the hard work in keeping track of everybody's numbers!

I'll probably take my birding more seriously in 2010 than I did in 2009, so hopefully I can climb even further.

A quick trip to Kgomo-kgomo yielded three lifers!

Sedge Warbler
Western Marsh-Harrier!!!
Dwarf Bittern!!!

This takes me to 649.

I'm going to be very brave (or crazy!?) and set my target for 2010 at a tough 700!

With only about 5 trips for 2009 and all in areas I birded before I only managed one lifer for December - Montagu's Harrier - my list now 526

Maybe 2010 will allow more birding time :?
