Hello All,

Well, this cutting and pasting can have its drawbacks! The recent bird list I gave of birds recently seen on the BOCA bird challenge count was the wrong list! I accidently cut and pasted the master list of birds seen in the Cohuna area over the last three years on bird count day. I should have cut and pasted the day list for this year.

So those who were keen to get up here and see Freckled Duck, Orange Chats, Painted Snipe, etc. bear in mind that they have not yet been reported this season. Remember though that all on the list could turn up in the area this time of the year. The correct list of birds seen on 10th December is attached below.

Sorry for the mistake. The total number seen for the day still stands at 163.
