After a couple of attempts I finally managed to hear (but not see) Common Treecreeper to get it onto the green list.
It is very local around here (I have found just three sites within a 10 mile radius): Short-toed Treecreeper dominates.

At what altitude do you find the Common Treecreeper Xeno ?

Another really hard day yesterday - about fifty miles cycled (well, including pushing the bike up many hills). 2 new birds for my list - Cuckoo and Pied Flycatcher (neither of which were new for the group's UK or Global lists). I'm up to 143 now. It's getting really hard to add new species

I still have a few nightbirds that I should be able to add.
I have no excuse now the curfew is lifted (do unsuitable weather, laziness and incompetence count?)

Edit: Montague's Harrier today!

Five more for me recently, all without walking more than 25metres (well, I've been doing a lot of tiring gardening....). Red-backed Shrike, Whinchat, Northern Wheatear, Short-toed Snake Eagle and Honey Buzzard. None are new for the World list but Whinchat seems to be new for Europe, taking us to 215 species.

I've had four new species for my Green list in the last two days - including 2 that were new for both the UK and Global lists - Northern Fulmar (which I was surprised about) and Lesser Grey Shrike (which I wasn't). The Shrike was my rarest bird yet for my list, and my first British tick. It also took my longest ride yet - 62 miles there and back (Whitby from Middlesbrough). I'm dead chuffed

I’d be dead beat rather than dead chuffed after such an epic effort!

These are all from at or close by our house at Danggaja NR at Topaz near Malanda, Queensland since Jan 1 this year; we have feeders on the deck railing and are delighted to have Satin Bowerbirds with a new bower right beside the house, a very odd time of year as we come into winter and it's been very wet. Birds with a star are daily at the moment and those without months listed are every month this year as far as May

This is great. It makes me really want to go to Australia - so many birds I've never seen or even (in many cases) heard of.

After two weeks without a functioning bicycle I am mobile again, but my addition comes from the home office: a Serin was calling from a nearby spruce.
I see about one a year locally and most of these in flight only.

I finally managed to find a Little Owl, although they occur really close to my home. The curfew was a bit of a spanner in the works!
