Whilst not wishing to get into any gender debate, it is noticeable that on
Tony Palliser's list ( the highest placed
woman is at number 20. Many possibilities of course:

Women don't keep lists
Women aren't as obsessive as men at chasing rare birds
There are not as many women birders
They are too modest to post to Tony's list

I will leave others to draw what conclusions they want from this
