A HUGE thank you for the great work, l_raty!

A few comments:
Yellow-billed Egret: HBW cites observations in

Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Prince Edward Is (Mar 2003), Bhutan, Mortlock Is and Midway Atoll (Hawaii)
, but not to any WP country. Yet.

Sequence: There are in fact several concerns with this and the netfugl list. I#ve also noted it for Mergellus albellus between Mergus and
Melospiza between Zonotrichia. Probably more than that

Branta hutchinsii minima should be Cat C in the Netherlands

Netfugl has White-eared Bulbul P leucotis on its list, while AERC lists P leucogenys. I guess this is the result of splitting. Could somebody give me more details about this?

Here is the revised checklist. I've included all new sspp that have been acepted by at least one authority named by you

OK. It didn't use to be there, but it is now indeed -- or so it seems.

(What is "Cat C" in the Netherlands has always been disputable as there is no official Cat C on the Dutch list. What is generally understood as playing that role [in the context of WP listing and so far as I understand] is the list of established taxa appearing in the Lijst van Nederlandse vogelsoorten maintained by Arnoud van den Berg, to the exclusion of Phoenicopherus chilensis which is on this list but doesn't count because it breeds in Germany and is not treated as Cat C there. The list is usually available from [here] but, for some reason, not right now -- clicking the link yields a 404 error; however, the version of 1 May 2016 [here] does indeed include minima.)

In light of this thread, it will be interesting to see how complete Dominic Mitchell's forthcoming checklist Birds of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East: An Annotated Checklist is.
