Thanks Ferdie. You too.

And once again, a big thank you for keeping score.

Target for 2014 is 200 in the list!

Let's encourage the lurkers to get listed!

Well done on everyone's achievements especially Laine, Tilandi, Huntsman and Roan for reaching big milestones.

Thanks everyone. It took real hard work to reach 650 in SA. Hopefully I can visit some of the neighboring countries soon.

A special thanks to Ferdelance for keeping this list going. Great work. :clap:

Well done to all on reaching those special milestones :clap: :clap: I managed to add 3 more bonus lifers in the berg between Xmas and New Year to end the year and 538 and then picked up another unexpected tick at Roodeplaat to start off the new year with a bang :dance:
My total is now at 539 - 2014 target is 570 - dependent on a possible Namibia trip :D

Lifers added: Drakensberg Siskin, Drakensberg Rockjumper, Mountain Pipit and Cape Penduline-Tit

Have a great birding year and many thanks to Ferdelance for keeping this initiative going :clap:
