My list is done, now to check it against my book to see if I have been a bit 'creative'.

A 167 for me, although I may have missed a couple. Unfortunately my lists were thrown away. I usually buy a little booklet with the checklists, which normally have 5 columns and use a column for every trip. Once the booklet is full, I throw it away and buy another one. My life list is a bit inconclusive as to precisely where each and every bird were spotted.

I am on 204. Interestingly my highest on 1 trip is 137!

Must look for some 'missing' ones.
