I believe I had 169 lifers on my trip to Costa Rica, the last of which was a Yellow-headed Caracara that flew over in the busy capital of San Jose.

89 in Gambia brought up my 1500 in the world. I couldn't tell you what was number 1500 exactly because of recent armchairs and for that matter a modicum of confusion during the holiday itself about what I needed or didn't (e.g. I thought Pygmy Sunbird was a tick but it turned out I saw it in Kenya years ago).

And I'm not even going to say the highlights because there will be a report when I've got a grip on the photos (shot nearly 9000, back of camera cull left 3,500, working on about 500).

NEVER do that, particularly not while still out taking photos! The camera will slot new photos into the empty gaps left by the deletions, leaving all your photos mixed up and out of timed order. A fatal error I discovered a while back! Only delete junk pics after download.

Mine's never done that and indeed hasn't on this occasion. Are you a Canon user? If not, perhaps you should be.....

Never seen this either, as a Canon user. Every shot is given a unique incremental numerical file name, and your next shot is always in sequence regardless of any deleting.

My old fuji finepix did it, and pretty sure my current canon does too, though (since discovering the problem with the fuji) I've been very careful to avoid the risk. I'll have to try a test to see if it does or not. I discovered it on return from a Morocco trip; while out there I'd run out of card space and deleted the useless pics, and then all the new pics from the end of the trip were slotted into the numbering sequence where the deleted pics had been. It is still possible to sort them by the exif time stamps, but very tedious.
