In a friendly year list challenge last year the winner was a Mr Walter Veale with a very impressive 200 species! Second after a recount was Mr Charles with 199 species and 3rd was Keith Bennett with 195 species. The moral of the story for Keith is dont leave the country for 3 months of the year and for Mr Charles is go and look for a Madarin Duck! Well done to Walter who has already said he wont do another one, but we dont believe one! His pwize is this photo of a Hoopoe which is ironic as its a bird Walter has never seen in Northern Ireland! Anyone else who wants to join us this year let us know.
