Birding sites- the Green Sand Assessment.

Posted Tuesday 12th February 2019 at 21:44 by Green Sandpiper
Like a lot of us, I'm guessing, I'm a huge fan of Bill Oddie's Little Black Bird Book. I'm a fan of the man himself, naturally, but there's something about the self- deprecating tone of the LBBB that strikes a chord. One section involves our man categorising different types of birders, in a mostly non- judgemental way, leaving it up to ourselves to form our own opinions.

2019 birding blog

Birding diary 2019.
1st January: New Year ‘bird race’
In 2018 I had tried to see as many species as possible. I was doing well until a rather unrewarding (in terms of new species) week in Norfolk in October. The timing of my holidays is very much work-governed and clearly I had left it too late.
