Very casual birder until 2019, since then patch birding regularly at Dagenham Chase, UK twitching since 2020. With the exception of a period in Malawi in 2016 I never took notes abroad, so my world list could have been double what it is...

I've been a naturalist and biological recorder since childhood. I grew up in North Wales and started, predictably, with birds before focusing on botany. Then came an obsessive moth phase. More recently I've focused on Diptera. I also dabble in Auchenorrhyncha and Symphyta and anything else that turns up in my net and looks interesting. I started PSL around 2015 based on previous lists and notes. Currently nearing completion on a mission to see all the UK Sorbus taxa.
Any species level biological record counts, dead or alive, plant hybrids are included but only where they are clearly persistent and occur away from one or other parent. Nearly all of my PSL is self-found and identified.

Bit of a mad naturalist and a keen 'organism lister' since well before the phrase 'pan-species listing' was coined. Birds were my first passion, then moths, orthoptera, plants...you name it and I've probably got an interest in it! I've found a small handful of species new to Britain. 2006 was a Big Bird Year when I managed 314 in UK, nowadays I'm lucky to hit about half of that! In recent years, my main areas of interest are plants, birds and diptera, but I'm perpetually into other stuff. I alternate between shaggy hair and scruffy beard/ crewcut and clean-shaven, but any bloke halfway up a mountain with a handlens around his neck, swilling Red Bull and with a big green demon tattoo on his left arm is likely to be me.

I am an amateur naturalist and volunteer at RSPB Pagham Harbour. I try to promote engagement with nature in Sussex and its surrounding counties, and promote the use of public transport to travel to nature sites. My particular interests are birds, lichens, bryophytes and vascular plants but when I am on nature trips I try to record all species I notice

My website gives information about the the species I have seen at nature sites in Sussex, including details of public transport links to those sites

Individual species that I have seen are listed chronologically on my iNaturalist public page ay @sim_elliott. I also use iRecord to record significant species. You can see my tweets on species and conservation on Twitter at @sim_nature

Growing up in rural, coastal Scotland, as a kid I was surrounded by nature, which led to a lifelong love of wildlife. However, I only seriously started birding (and listing!) in 1994 during a period of post-graduation unemployment when I needed something better to do than watch TV and read job rejection letters!

I still consider myself to be primarily a birder. However, during the lockdown in 2020, I started trying to identify everything I could find in my garden, and so fell into pan-fauna listing (I don't really "do" plants and fungi, only taking note of ones that catch my eye), with spiders and leafmines now being particular newfound loves.

Initially, my birding efforts were centred around Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire. Now living in Merseyside, my routine wildlife-hunting is mostly in Lancashire and Cheshire. It can be quite casual in nature, many species being found by chance, rather than by design.

I enjoy travel, both within the UK and abroad, and have always tried to find opportunities to look for wildlife when travelling, even on family holidays and business trips. My ambition is to visit Costa Rica, New Zealand and Antarctica.

North-west London based. Birding in Southern England within 3hrs max of M25 predominantly apart from May 2005 on Mull. Lists are from 2004 Summer to present since starting up.

Keen in particular on Dungeness and Kent in general. Year lists summarised since 2014 in detail. Highest number so far in one year is Britain BOU : 201. Time, inclination and cost of petrol may see this figure go up or down !

I've been birding since childhood but only started thinking about listing in 2005, including the occasional twitch within a couple of hours of home (now Surrey). Always interested in other groups such as fungi, pan-species listing has encouraged me to tackle more. I'm a land management professional and worked for the a range of NGOs and local authorities before setting up as a consultant in 2011.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s I bird-watched with my father (in the picture) and never kept a single list! I took up birding again in 1987, this time in earnest. Most of my birding is done in Essex and Suffolk. My ‘world birding’ is much more restricted nowadays, but between the late 1980s and the late 2000s, I visited: continental Europe; India; SE Asia, including Borneo; Zimbabwe; Ghana; Egypt; Morocco; Trinidad & Tobago; Mexico; Costa Rica; and right across the United States of America, including Alaska. All of this was by independent travel.

Primarily an arachnologist, part time birder, so obviously non-competitive! Ran the Aberystwyth Natural History Society for two academic years at uni, and that's where I got into birding. I had wanted to get into the hobby since I was a boy because of the accessibility of birds and the social side, but it was discovering the accumulation aspect that got me hooked! I currently live in Bournemouth, but go birding mostly in Hampshire.

None of my lists include species that were heard only.

I've been interested in natural history most of my life, with an increasing focus on insects once I realised that there were a lot more of those than there are birds. I have a particular interest in Hoverflies, Ladybirds and Heteroptera, and I'm the county recorder for the latter in Bedfordshire.
