Total Boulmer List.

Trawling the annual reports, and from my own experience etc I have added the whole list for Boulmer on to Xtra! See link left. Shows what potential any east coast bump can have, even one as under watched as this. Of the 208 total I've had 187...so far.

Upland Sand ???!!! Jeeez I'd crap myself if I found one of them at Newton !!

Bet those other birds in bold are yours aren't they ? Some nice stuff.... White-billed Diver, Pied wheatear... its a bit rare innit !!

I wish! Bold are the best birds. A few I've seen and a few I've found. The PW was trapped and ringed in the 80's. The US was shot about a mile from my house in 1879! We're due another...

Chris,only tick what you are happy with. Even if not submitted to the powers that be. Be wholly honest with yourself and to hell with the rest. Don't be afraid to admit to a mistake after the fact. We've all done it. People who keep 'stringy' birds on their lists are only kidding themselves cos no one else really gives a damn. Good luck with the patch.

What do you reckon you're likely to get that isn't already on the Boulmer list?

Corys & Great Shearwater should be achievable you'd think?

Or whats about a Richards or Tawny Pipit - perhaps a flyover while you're on that seat one morning?

Well I had a Richards here Oct 1st 2006 but didn't get enough to submit it, it was flushed, called then legged it to the horizon, but thats what it was. After getting Stone Curlew absolutely anything is possible. Desert Wheatear maybe or a Yank gull or Alpine Swift or owt really!!!Keeps me on my toes.
