Do we have a bonsai connection? Suzhou, Kyoto, ... There should be more to make a connection.

I don't know — seems to me that a bonsai connection would have to be carefully tended and need lots of attention lest it die of neglect! :-)

Connection: Ramsar Wetlands

W-Arly-Pendjari Complex is already in this connection, due to the Ramsar wetland "Parc national du "W"", but there are also the Ramsar wetlands "Zone Humide de la Rivière Pendjari" (2007) and "Parc National d'Arly" (2009).

Plus, in 2018, a transboundary Ramsar site wat created for the complex: "Complexe transfrontalier W-Arly-Pendjari". See: Parc National d'Arly

Connection: First inscriptions

The first inscription for Belgium is not in the list. Belgium's first sites came in 1998, as three sites were inscribed. Going by the number, the Flemish Béguinages were the first site for Belgium.

Not sure where to put this, so I'm putting it here:

The page on St. Kilda should also mention an extension in 2004 under "Site History", as it was extended in that year, according to this document.

Could Bruges be included into the "North Sea" connection?

Bruges' connection to the North Sea made it a prosperous mercantile city and an important Hanseatic city.

Wikipedia:
Bruges became important due to the tidal inlet that was important to local commerce. This inlet was then known as the "Golden Inlet". (...) Since about 1050, gradual silting had caused the city to lose its direct access to the sea. A storm in 1134, however, re-established this access, through the creation of a natural channel at the Zwin. The new sea arm stretched all the way to Damme, a city that became the commercial outpost for Bruges.

I'd go for the first mentioned in the report as the main identifier: the numbers are given out earlier in the process (when a site is brought under the attention of the WHC), they don't indicate an order of inscription. Natural sites are discussed first usually (at least in the recent years).
