UK currently on 68. I'm sure there easy species missing. Note it is starting from Nov 1st for England, Scotland, Wales and N Ireland for simplicities sake.

Mainland Europe on 110. I've eliminated the obvious duplicates - there may well be more - please flag them up on here or amend the table.

I've just trawled through the spreadsheet Dan and found quite a few duplicates in the Mainland Europe one, I chickened out of deleting them for fear of destroying your handiwork!
Duplicates found:
Great Spotted Woodpecker, Grey headed Woody, Black Woody
Black Redstart
Mute Swan
Yellowhammer
Bullfinch
Siskin
Marsh Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Crested Tit, Coal Tit
Treecreeper
Mallard
Griffon Vulture
House Sparrow
Blackbird
Nuthatch


I added Lammergeier today, 'scoped while sitting on our new bench (that took 4 months to arrive after ordering!):t:
Gerald has 'Redstart', I would guess it's Black Redstart at this time of year?

Thanks again for doing this Dan.

Cheers Richard!

I will update later this evening. Was hoping someone would do it as, well, too much going on at the moment and as soon as I tried comparing my brain started protesting ...

If you want to play without actually deleting anything ... choose the 'strikethrough' (puts a line through something) and will highlight them up, I can always do the actual deletion later. Also it is possible to go back to earlier versions if everything goes wrong.

Nice one on the Lammergeier!

Strikethroughs done!
Keeping an eye out for 'Vigo' but the only immature Lammergeier I've seen lately was one of this year's young, still following an adult.
