After failing to beat my UK target of 182 (my 1972 year list, when I was 14) last year with 160, I decided to accept work and other commitments mean this will remain an unrealistic target. So I aim to beat my more modest 2016 total of 160, but try and see species I didn't connect with last year...with the emphasis on regularly occurring UK species rather than rarities.
Jan 1st total (Northumberland, UK): 47, including 1 not seen last year (merlin)
Jan 2nd (Northumberland): 6 including marsh tit (seen last year, but still good to see!), total 53
Jan 3rd (back at work, Durham): 2, total 55
Jan 4th (out and about with work, Northumberland / Durham): 7, total 62
Jan 5th (travel to work, Durham): 2, total 64
Ahead so far on 2016 (49 by Jan 5th), but its early days yet...I'll try and post the full lists in the 'members lists' section.

An ambitious 16 mile day hike to-and-back from Chile's majestic La Junta (Cochamó Valley) turned into crazy rainy mud slog. Fortunately got a couple more for the year before the weather turned:
60. Ringed Kingfisher
61. Austral Parakeet (lifer)

I just finished posting the list of new birds I saw today when I checked my bird feeder and saw another new bird for the year.

67. Cooper's Hawk

Needless to say, there were no other birds to be seen while he was perched on a post near the feeder.
