It was amazing to read that American Noah Strycker has broken the most species recorded in a single year when seeing a Frogmoth in Sri Lanka. The previous record set by friends of the blog Alan Davies & Ruth Miller was 4341, however Ruth still holds the record for the leading female which will give her the bragging rights in the household.
This sort of record needs total dedication, a great deal of skill, finance and luck. From reading "The Biggest Twitch" book by Ruth & Alan it's essential you have the spirit to ride through the difficult times on journeys such as this.
It will be interesting to see if Noah maintains his level of motivation and puts the record out of sight for many years.
