Life-List

This is my 'New Dawn' life list. Over the many years I've watched birds I've also visited many countries, Cuba, Tanzania, Kenya and Venezuela to name a few and have seen many species. However, I think I'll start afresh having rekindled my passion for birding more recently.

Total January 1st 2009 to February 10th 2011 - 352 bird species
