This trip supplied 116, but my previous trips will definitely add more, so we go do some homework...

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.
