This year's target is again set at 500. A January trip to South Africa, with two days at Pafuri in the Northern Kruger to hopefully hunt down Pel's Fishing Owl and 6 days in the Sabi Sand, should hopefully see me at 185.
A spring trip to England and possibly Poland will bring a target of 65, with the rest coming from the US. Though with no trips to FL, TX and MA planned, it might be hard to make 250, let alone the 297 I managed this year.
