Starting on 02 April, I started birding at the Tobacco Heritage Trail in Boydton Mecklenburg County an eBird Hot Spot that no one else had yet birded.
After visiting on 20 days, 124.75 hr Traveling with 11.50 Nocturnal and 6.25 Hrs Stationary with 3 Hrs Nocturnal and walking 39 Miles with 3.25 Nocturnal; I reached my 110 species for the Hot Spot today moving it into the #10 Hot Spot for Mecklenburg County.
My first goal was to reach 100 species and after that to reach 110 to get to the #10 Hot Spot for Mecklenburg Co.
There are still some species that with luck and work that should be added to the list by summer or fall.
