Garden / House list Ranking

Someone once suggested this for a laugh on a mailing list I subscribe to. But whay not? Its just an idea at the moment but as soon as I have some responses this side will present rankings, overall, by country and possibly by habitat type.

This is just for fun, otherwise a whole load more parameters would have to be taken into account to make things "fair". Hopefully it should give us an idea about where we should be living and where housing for birders should be built. Perhaps this side will become a favourite for real estate developers too!

The rules are simple: the number of species recorded in or from your garden, seen or heard.

Note that no information, other than your name (real names preferred but not essential), a number of species and the country in which you live is collected and no information will be shared or distributed to third parties.
