<p>OK, hands up, I confess! Events overtook me again and the month, nay the season changed before my clicking finger retrieved the list for May. But all is not lost. Most…., but not all. Ebird still allows me the facility to collate the year list and feature the birds that were added to it during May. This may not be the high standard that you might expect from 10,000 Birds, but it’s what you are getting. The joy is that you get to read a completely random list of birds and try to guess where they are from. The only common factors are that they were all seen by the beats (11 of them) during May. They have boosted the year list to 1396 after 860 checklists.
