Love seeing people doing "beyond birds" year lists, I guess I'm biased because I'm a bit insanely passionate in that department (worse, I've found out to be into plants as of 10 years ago so my walking pace in any reserve is forever capped to a gentle step per hour!).
Thanks. I've always been interested in general nature and always been too influenced by wanting to see new things, I'm terrible for logging films and stuff I read too and always want to see everything by a given director so when I'm out I'll generally try and photograph and ID pretty much everything I see. Keeps returning to the same places interesting in winter months if you're looking at insects and fungi as well. I'm slowly getting into plants too, I find it hard to latch onto all the information in new fields but I am very good at remembering if I've seen something before (I find it hard to reread or rewatch stuff as it's immediately too familiar word for word) so once I have logged something I'm usually pretty good at recalling where I saw it before.
I think given I want to see new stuff that I have to widen beyond birds or I'd just be wanting to twitch all the time, I was out for hours twice this week but mainly looking at fungi and then adder surveying so no new updates
Joining igoterra was another big factor for me as it let's you list everything and keeps numbers ticking along which I have to admit does drive me a little
