Its always a pleasure reading the e-mails from Wim. This one was full of
good humour, and you certainly need that when your birding in the far north
of Norway in the winter. After reading many mails on this group about giant
species lists, Wim's list of 20 may not impress. However, there are birders
in Norway that see less. My mate Bill "the tick" Sloan lives in a place
called Geilo, way up in the mountains on the east side of the
Hardangervidda. His best start to the new year is a list of 11 species from
the 1/1 - to the 1/3. Two whole months birding with just 11 birds to note
down. Wow! The only thing that keeps Bill going is his yearly trips to
Australia. His wife comes from down under, so he knows that during the
course of a year, he will be birding along with you guys and his year list
rockets to more respectable numbers.

All the best,
Eddie Chapman.  Voss.  Norway.
