Targets for the year

Ian Magness has combed through the year list, which stands on 96, and identified the glaring gaps to fill by the year's end. In a roughly descending order of likelihood, they are as follows:

Spotted Flycatcher (urgent, find one soon before it's too late!)
Reed Bunting
Golden Plover
Common Snipe
Barn Owl
Common Crossbill
Black Redstart
Marsh Tit
Mute Swan

And who knows what else might turn up? A healthy year list is on the cards. Golden Plover is particularly overdue, with no records for a couple of years.
