Just when I thought that our beats were taking it easy after the exertions of September, Dragan pops up in Costa Rica and takes the collaborative sHaremate of the Month title for October. Keep your eyes open Pat, you never know who you might bump into in the forests!
Pat receives a special achievement award for submitting a checklist with 153 species in one day and Tristan wins the accolade for Most Promising Newcomer. Redgannet has been prevaricating. He should have been studying for his exams, but instead, he went on holiday to add Spain to the country list and bring a further splash of colour to the profile map. The Country/Territory/Kingdom/Prinicipality/Special Administrative Region/Emirate/ List now numbers 42, but only 5 of them were represented for October; USA, UK, Mexico, Costa Rica and Spain.
The yearly list for USA stands at 499 as at the end of October. Could we see a milestone passed this weekend?
10 beats contributed 153 checklists for 598 species. This brings the year list to 2232 and the life list to 3248.
