I had Laughing Kookaburra as well, so you'll need to scratch that one.

I can't believe I didn't see any Australian Swiftlets!

Given that we decided we could count fea's type petrel, we can count swintail snipe. But I guess now's the time to ask if that might have been an Eastern Cattle Egret, after all the Western ones we've had?

Trying to sort out the updated global list, and I see that was our first Little Grebe. The first Wood Sandpiper and first Yellow-browed Warbler were less surprising, but ... Little Grebe???

I had it in post #104 (two sites as it turns out).

But have to admit didn't pick up that it wasn't on the main list. Presume nothing else.

I was being lazy when I updated the global list and didn't check your whole list against it. So the little grebe got added to the UK and Europe lists but was missed from the global. Ah well, it's on there now.

Eurasian Shag was number 326, now 325, reported by Stonefaction.

The big gap in the UK list this year seems to be owls - we got Barn Owl but none of the others. I went looking for Tawny in a good local spot but no joy.

A few other species that were reported 1 Jan last year but not this, but mainly things like Bittern and Bearded Tit which perhaps need a bit more time to connect with than people are willing to spend on 1 Jan.

Bah humbug
Too windy to listen for Tawny Owls here in Cornwall. Mild winter - can't recall hearing of any Bitterns down here but maybe less upcountry too?
