The autumn is upon us. Southbound migrants are passing through in torrents. Are you getting any action?

The beats have been ranging far and wide. 62 species have been added to our combined life list, breaking through the next hundred which has been proving very stubborn. However ticks from Argentina, Brazil, China and Mexico have pushed it to 3836. There is also a chance that we will achieve 5,000 complete checklists by month’s end (5000 exactly!).

10 Beats have been out in 9 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Serbia, China, Costa Rica, USA, UK, Italy and Mexico) and have shared 125 lists to account for 916 birds. Italy is the newest country to feature in our collection of Countries/Territories/SARs/Kingdoms/Principalities and brings this list to 51.

The year list, at 2226, is too cumbersome to post. Even 916 for September is a bit heavy, so for this month only, the list will feature just the new, red-letter species.

This is them;

Redgannet has been working for over 33 years as a crew member/flight attendant and enjoys the well-ventilated air of the outdoors. The nom de blog, Redgannet, was adopted to add an air of mystery and to make himself more attractive to women. His father first whetted Redguga's appetite for all things natural by buying him his first pair of 7x35s and a copy of Thorburn's Birds. Having no mentor beyond an indulgent parent, he spent the first season hoping for an Egyptian Vulture at the bird table in his English garden. His most memorable birding moment is seeing an Egyptian Vulture with those same binoculars 26 years later. Redgannet is married to Canon, but his heart and half of his house belongs to Helen and their son Joseph. He is looking forward to communicating with people who don't ask if he is searching for the "feathered variety" of bird.
