RON JOHNS back in there

It was great to see Ron Johns getting back into the twitching spirit this weekend, finally adding the Indian House Crow that has taken up residence in Cobh town centre in County Cork. This was his 577th species recorded in Britain and Ireland and places him just one bird behind the joint Norfolk-based leaders - Steve Gantlett and Mel Billington. Ron certainly deserves the crown having been mad keen on rare birds and birding in general since at least the late 1950's.

Whilst on the subject of the Listings, a FULLY REVISED list is now available to download from the UK and Ireland 400 Club website, to enable those that wish to - to submit their current Life List. Please remember that old copies of the list are not compatible with this version so for me to accurately reflect your latest totals on the Master Spreadsheet, this most latest update (November 2010) must be used
