Arjan Dwarshuis Biggest Year

This thread was started to follow/discuss Arjan's progress in 2016 as he attempts to break the world record just set by Noah Strycker earlier today.

A couple of useful links:
http://www.arjandwarshuis.com
http://world.observation.org/user/li...4878?jaar=2016
http://www.dutchbirding.nl/news.php?id=1049

Please remember that this is also a fundraiser for Birdlife's "Preventing Extinctions" programme (donations via his website)!

Cheers,
Joost

I appreciate an earlier thread already exists on this, but as was discussed there it was desirable to start a new one following Arjan's actual progress. Saves peopl having to trawl through 5 pages before the big year actually starts.

Certainly not a discussion. One unilateral post...... In light of some of the discussions on comparisons etc, it seemed an odd post at that. But c'est la vie.

All the best

Why this topic? Any topic about his big year will have 4 pages in some days or weeks, so that's not a valid reason to start a new one.
