Hi all,
I have just uploaded the latest update to my website:
This includes the Sandgrouse,Pteroclidae, and the first half of Laridae.
With Laridae, I have completed down to Kelp Gull in Peters sequence.
I have built in to this my reaction to recent papers.  I have widely followed Yesou's reanalysis
of the Larus argentatus complex.  I have decided to recognise Larus mongolicus on the basis of Liebers & Helbig,2002.
Please look at the Scientific synonyms data in Laridae, because it is there that I put my comments.
The other thing that struck me in entering the Laridae data was the struggle that ornithologists in the nineteenth century
had in analysing members of this family.  With some species or taxa, the bulk of the scientific synonyms are followed by Not....
I find this history fascinating.  I hope you do too!
As always, comments, corrections and updates are weclome. Thanks to the many people who have contributed extra data to the distribution of Larus fuscus. 
Enjoy! It's all available free!!!
