Year list so far

Although I am again not actively going for birds I need for the year I am, as always, keeping count of my year list so that I can compare with previous years. Seeing as I've had a good first week and a bit I have just counted up my total and I'm on 112. This is a very conservative count; I'm 99% sure I had Mallard, Greylag and Reed Bunting yesterday but didn't write them down and I also have not added some very convincing probable Mealies at the patch on Saturday (rump was only feature not seen). Despite this I'm still eight ahead of my entire January 2010 list.
