Adding 4 and removing 1 error takes Team GB to 163.

As we're now past the end of 1 Jan, a reminder that it isn't too late to contribute your sightings, as long as the bird was seen or heard before midnight yesterday (local time) - no sneaking in any owls heard at 1am this morning!

Not sure where to see the lists without reading through all 88 posts but in case it helps, I saw merlin, hen harrier, rough-legged buzzard in Kent yesterday. (I notice that eBird lists 122 species recorded in the UK yesterday, so 163 is respectable.)

On the up side there was a dusky warbler reported in Warks. But I suppose it has to be reported on here for a BF member to count (I haven't seen it yet hoping it hangs around until the weekend)

I can add green woodpecker however which does not seem to be on the list, seen in a Leicester park across the road from my front window.

OK, so it turns out the ultra-rare hyphen-less form of Red-legged Partridge isn't actually a separate species, so we lose another one. But 4 more reported since the last version of the list, so now on 169. Our best ever year.
