Began my birding career in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire in 1968 and have been a n avid county lister in both since then; Tring Reservoirs is currently my main local patch. My UK400 Club list is 3 more at 264 species (Ruddy Shelduck, Falcated Duck, White-headed Duck, Tundra Bean Goose, Wlcated Duck, hite Wagtail and Siberian Chiffchaff) This is still a work in progress and some of the dates are rough as I cannot locate many of my notebooks to check the details. Some dates are provisional and a few species are still to be added once dates are found (eg Serin, Fulmar, Gannet). Many thanks to Graham White and Mike Ilett in helping me locate some records.
