    I'm pretty surprised by just how well I did here with having only been in Europe for less than a month. I'm only 15 species shy of first place, maybe had I done Slimbridge when I returned to the UK I could have actually managed a win here! But regardless thanks to
    @Vision and @KevinVar for a great challenge and I apologize for not putting this out until the very last minute. See you next year! (well I won't... unless I do? But probably not- maybe.)

    Have you got one of those Chinese phones like FunkyGibbon?

    "Without further ado" is the expression - adieu means goodbye...

    It’s a good job I checked this thread today as Tyler’s listings reminded me of a species we both saw at Plzen! So this is 100% my final entry for the year haha

    Is that much adieu about nothing?

    Without further goodbyes make perfect sense in a completely different context :p

    I wrote "ado" and then my computer insisted it was wrong and it was actually "adieu". It was very late when I posted that so I didn't bother Googling which it was which was probably not the best decision.

    Also, I live in America, all of us have Chinese phones ;)

    So turns out I did miss one species that I saw from Chester!

    195) White-Backed Duck Thalassornis leuconotus

    So my 15 species gap with @ShonenJake13 remains intact :p
