For anyone who's only just seeing this thread, there's still time to add species to the lists - as long as you saw or heard the bird on 1 Jan not 2 Jan, it's fine to do the forum posting today.

Thanks to Gander and Jonny721 for their work on the the UK list. I'm working on lists for continental Europe and the USA - as usual I'll be grateful for all corrections as I do tend to include single species twice under different names due to lack of familiarity with local naming conventions.

We also had Crossbill sp reported but I don't think we're allowed to count it as there was doubt over whether it was Common or Parrot. Feral pigeon is allowed, but has been removed because we also had Rock dove and we can't count both.

I'm shamelessly going to nick this for the new John's Mammals thread, seems to be the complete list for BFers in Britain on 1 January unless anyone is late to the party:

Common Seal
Grey Seal
Red Fox
Fallow Deer
Roe Deer
Brown Hare
Rabbit
Grey Squirrel
Red Squirrel
Brown Rat
Bottlenose Dolphin

Eleven species - I think that's not bad for a single midwinter day.

Cheers

99% sure the wee beastie that scuttled across the road ahead of me as I cruised through mid Wales pre-dawn was a Wood Mouse. Make of that what you will. :t:

Humans are definitely tickable, they're native, not introduced, and self-sustaining, not artificially maintained o:D
