Update3: Changed the Hoopoe to seen. Added the Pied Crow. Will add any swallows once there is concensus on the species.
Update2: I've included 5 more birds that were seen and heard dung the last two days.
Update: I've included Landi's three owls.
I've made a quick tally of the birds mentioned on the forum and sofar the list already includes 39 species, with 22 seen, 17 only heard, 35 certain ID's and 4 possible ones! The dates in the list are those of the first time the bird was mentioned, not necessarily when it was first seen or heard.
I've also indicated if the bird was S(een) or H(eard) and whether the poster was C(ertain) of the ID or whether it was (P)ossibly that bird.
Behind the date I've added the scientific and (if different from the current one) old name for easy reference.
Please post any birds I missed or a quick mention of any new birds that reveal themselves before the end of this month so I can add them.
I'll start a new list in October.
