Hi birding-aussers,


Since Ruth and I completed our "VicTwitch" Big Year in Victoria last year, I
am interested in the history of Big Years in Australia. I can't find that
much information - presumably because Big Years are not pursued particularly
vigorously in Australia. Here is what I have:


Australian Records:


????: 535 Species: John McKean

1979: 545 Species: Roy Wheeler

2002: 703 Species: Sean Dooley


(All information from Sean Dooley's book, "The Big Twitch")


Victorian Records:


2006: 336 Species: John Harris

2009: 345 Species: Tim Dolby

2010: 389 Species: Paul Dodd & Ruth Woodrow


South Australian Records:


2010: ??? Species: Kay Parkin


Local Records:


2010: Hunter Valley: 343 Species: Mick Roderick


Does anyone have any other information, history or other details on birding
records in Australia?
