Changes to the South-West Leicestershire List

A copy of the updated list can be found HERE

If the list doesn't open you will need to download Google Drive

I have decided, after much deliberation, to extend the boundary of my local listing area eastwards as far as the M1. This brings Shawell nicely into the SW Leicstershire Listing area, which helps to add a couple of species to the total. The map included with the list shows how well the M1 forms the eastern boundary.

The list now stands at 198 with the addition of  Ring-billed Gull, Iceland Gull, Egyptian Goose, Nightjar and Rock Pipit.

The Nightjar was seen by a lucky Earl Shilton resident during September 2012.

Also three of the old Great Grey Shrike records have been submitted to LROS records committee and  accepted.
