1996 was definitely the best year ever in Twitching History! The summer was excellent with a lot of waders (and claims of waders!) and autumn revealed some birds we never ever expected to see! In one year both Isabelline Wheatear and Isabelline Shrike, both the Blyth's species and two Nearctic passerines! And at the end of the year, I had my 400th species in the Netherlands!
