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 urope lists but was missed from the global. Ah well, it's on there now.

Eurasian Shag was number 326, now 325, reported by Stonefaction.
We had Little Grebe early on, but I typed it out as Dabchick. We also had Eurasian Shag early on, but not sure if you're referring to the same bird?

From the Hong Kong list: we've also had Pied Avocet, BW Stilt and Spotted Dove before. The last one was one of mine.

OK, so deduct 4 from the total for those (we hadn't added the shag as in the UK it would inevitably be Eurasian), then add one to UK (142), Europe (198) and global (550):

550) Short-eared Owl

The Cattle Egret is certainly Eastern. Whether you count it depends on which taxonomy you follow. No strong views

Cheers
Mike
Although people are welcome to use whatever taxonomy they're familiar with (as witness the eccentric names used by the UK contributors), we're using IOC for the combined lists. So:

551) Eastern Cattle Egret

Just seen this thread! Any chance you can post just the UK list so I can see if I saw any additional species? I'm getting confused looking back through the comments!

Maybe a bit pedantic but regarding Andy's contribution from Cyprus, I know they are in the EU, and Eurovision, but geographically would be in Asia...

The latest UK list from post #150 has 142 species, although it includes both Lesser Redpoll and 'Redpoll' which presumably also relates to lesser, so should be 141.

I can add the following 8 species from NYD that don't feature in that list:
Red-legged Partridge
Bittern
Hen Harrier
Woodcock
Jack Snipe
Merlin
Corn Bunting
Yellowhammer

Some missing species from the list that may have been around on NYD, I've highlighted the 'easier' ones:

Thanks for the handy summary of missing species! From that list I saw Common Scoter and Red Grouse in north wales on NYD. If I had walked up the Orme as planned I also would have had Chough and possibly Iceland Gull but alas that did not happen.

We got Fulmar from Europe but not the UK. Normally I'd be in South Devon for new year and would expect to get Fulmar, Greenshank and Cirl Bunting. But then I'd have missed Glossy Ibis, Bewick's Swan and Ruff, so swings and roundabouts.
