I will attempt to keep the traditions going; with the last update being almost 10 months ago we have quite a lot of catching up to do, however, and I will therefore take a few shortcuts…
In the list above, all those that have added to their totals are in bold. In addition, everyone that has moved to a higher group will be in red. New entries (none in this update) will be in blue.
So; overall the biggest movers since August 2015 are:

Umtali1 : 108 new ticks (Red Jacket)
Eugene123: 87 new ticks (Green Jacket)
Albert: 70 new ticks (Blue Jacket)

Congratulations to Eugene 123, Bush Baptist and Johan N for joining the 700-club. In addition Johan N’s birds are all photographed; a phenomenal achievement! DotDan has joined the 600 club, and Sky and Bushbuddies have moved into the 500+ group. Rodsab and Albert (me 8) ) are now in the 400+ group, while Umtali1’s ticks has resulted in a move to the middle of the 200 club.

In a brief summary: the biggest movers (month by month as reported) has been:

Aug 2015: Tilandi (+17) and Pantera Leo (+9)
Sept 2015: Albert (+9), Johan van Rensburg (+7) and DotDan (+7)
Oct 2015: Umtali1 (+108), AddictedToBirds (+13) and Karin Mitton (+13)
Nov 2015: AddictedToBirds (+15) and Karin Mitton (+6)
Dec 2015: Sky (+51), Albert (+40) and Karin Mitton (+19)
Jan 2016: Eugene 123 (+87), Rodsab (+47) and Bush Baptist (+43)
Feb 2016: KobusF (+24), DotDan (+16), Pantera Leo (+7)
Mar 2016: Pantera Leo (+3) and PNF (+2)
Apr 2016: Bush Baptist (+4), Albert (+4) and Johan van Rensburg (+1)
There were no updates in May, and I will update June’s figures at the end of the month.

Keep birding and keep updating. Encourage new birders to contribute to the list! :thumbs_up:

Splendid job Albert :clap: :clap:

Let's see if we can get 200 birders on the list before next time.

Please encourage your friends.

I'm still busy compiling my list, but time is not on my side! Not much time to search through previous files and folders to add to the list, but will try whenever I can to finish the list and post it here. :thumbs_up:

An incredible few days birding bumped me up another 3 lifers. Roseate Tern, Chestnut-banded Plover and Gurney's Sugarbird. New total: 589! :dance:
