Yesterday's Sanderling was species number 120 for the year. This is already a higher number of species in a year that I have known and we still have four months to go! I had unofficially set a target of 120 species for the year, but as we have already got to that I think we need to raise it up a level or two. There are several more common species we haven't seen yet (for example Gadwall, Shoveller, Goldeneye, Golden Plover, and Marsh Tit) and with migration about to peak there is chance for some more unusual records too. So I am thinking the target should be 130 species.
Thank you everyone for your records, please continue to send them in.
