Into March, and my first list of the year from outside the UK, with a work trip to Switzerland. Not much time to get out-and-about, and no hire car, so couldn't really get into the wilds, but it was a start, at least:

Zurich HB:
1. House sparrow

Zurich Stadt am Fluss:
2. Black-headed gull
3. Feral pigeon
4. Coot
5. Mallard
6. Chaffinch
7. Nuthatch
8. Blue tit
9. Blackbird
10. Jackdaw
11. Carrion crow
12. Grey wagtail
13. Grey heron
14. Yellow-legged gull*

In Zofingen, where I stayed a couple of days:
15. Magpie
16. Collared dove
17. Great tit
18. White wagtail
19. Marsh tit*

Finally, from the train as we passed through Dietikon:
20. Tufted duck

* two species not on the UK list
World life list: 536 (Terek Sandpiper, Abu Dhabi, UAE; September 2019)
UK life list: 228 (Red-backed Shrike, Newbiggin, UK; December 2018)
Morpeth Garden list: 70 (Willow Tit, October 2019)
2019 year list: 235 (Snow Bunting, Bamburgh; October)
