I'm late starting this! Last year I just managed the century, so that was the goal this year. I live in Berlin, where we have a surprising diversity of birds; during May and June I've been in Hessen (central Germany) near Rhäden am Obersuhl, a wonderful nature reserve, so the goal is already achieved...
