Thanks for the kind words Huntsman! :thumbs_up:

No prob Crested Val! I'm sure you will yes. Summer is always productive! :-)

NetEk what do you mean 103 for the year. Is that your total or just what you have seen this year alone? :D :hmz: The totals that I mention are just goals that people can set for thier life lists... not a must! :-)

Can I ask, how many years did it take you guys to get to the 600"s?

But just want to say WELL DONE to all the mites, some amazing lifer list totals here!

It can take a long while if you don't widen your birding hunting grounds, Super Mongoose.

I've been birding since Oct 2003 and I am now on 648.

But in saying so, I have undertaken the task of ticking 600 species this year within South Africa's borders. Currently I am on 510 with one month to go to get the outstanding 90 ticks! So it is very possible to do this in one year. :wink:
