Well done @Peter Connan

An excellent selection to finish your Big Year (and to go racing past me!)

Superb photos throughout - I have really enjoyed your thread and look forward to your 2018 postings.

What I know for sure is that I will benefit immensely by birding shoulder to shoulder for 10days with you, Peter!
