New Year Bird Race – Update

Apologies for tardiness in updating the list – have been away from computer for several days!

I suspect that virtually all the results are now in and here is the (preliminary) final order

101* Rolling Turnstones

101 Martlets

93  Dynamic Duo

93 Mike’s Mergansers

87 North Wallcreepers

87 The Ryenecks

87 The Great Twits

81 TQ01ers

80 The Great Egrets

80  Wild Park Wanderers

78 Treasurer’s Team

78 Slow but Sure

65 Passing Passerines

61 Fab Four

50 Just the Two of Us

31 LBJs

The Rolling Turnstones and the Martlets both clocked up a very impressive 101 species, but the Turnstones gained a star rating for recording both Common and Siberian Chiffchaff!

There will be a more detailed round up in the Spring Newsletter, by which time I should have all the lists in and can work out the total number of species seen overall, how many species were seen by all teams and how many were “exclusive” to one Team.  Will also by then have some idea of how much has been raised to support bird conservation in the county.

Well done to all, and many thanks for your continued support of the Bird Race and SOS.
