a few more for the list -

168. barnacle goose (not sure how I'd failed to notice this at the time)

and two socking record shots that I had been hoping to improve upon...

169. long-tailed duck
170. pectoral sandpiper

I'm now desperate for one more trip to the coast as I've realised I'm missing some very easy species...
