From 94 species around Somerset, I can add:-
Marsh Harrier
Ring-necked Duck

So now 155?

Mind you my favourite sightings were before 5.30am with two Barn Owls before I left my patch to team up with a mate.

All the best

"surely Bar-headed Goose can't count so 146 actually"
I couldn't agree more, and it was me that saw them, I only include them for completeness, and noted them as escapes.

I saw a grey seal, so if we were doing a UK mammal list, including those that Farnboro John reported, it would read:

common seal
grey seal
fallow deer
roe deer
grey squirrel
brown rat
bottlenose dolphin.
