That's very mean, Bill, and you know it.

Having killed TWO Spotless Crakes with my car's wing mirror, on the same strip of road 3 years apart, I'd be terrified of ever achieving the sort of ultimate tick involving a rediscovery.

Firstly - who would believe me? And secondly, I know it would be like this: I'd be having a close look at something I'd just run over, only to find I'd flattened the only live NIght Parrot recorded in Victoria for a hundred years or more ....

I just saw an episode of Attenborough's "Life of Birds" featuring the Arctic Owl, and I was thinking I wouldn't mind going to see one. Quite a long distance twitch, but definitely worth it. Second place would have to be a massive flock (carnival?) of flamingoes somewhere exotic, Namibia or Zambia or the like. Any other fantasy twitches out there?
