Well, I had a couple of false starts with my new C&B 2008 checklist!

As I've explained offline to people I sent the list to, I keep my world bird 
list on a database which shows a mix of Clements and C&B 2008 English names.

Unfortunately, the the lists I initially sent out, and posted on my website, 
were inadvertently copied from that mixed database, instead of from my C&B 
database. Accordingly, some of the English names reflected Clements instead of 
C&B (eg “Thick-knee” instead of “Stone-curlew”).

I then compounded the felony, by redistributing correctly named lists, but 
without correcting the sequence to match C&B 2008! More haste less speed is the 

Swallowing my embarrassment - everyone who asked for one should now have the 
correctly named and sequenced list - and the list on the website should be 100% 

If anyone spots so much as a hyphen on the Australian Checklist at that does not correspond to C&B 2008, please be kind 
enough to let me know straight-away!!
