I wouldn't put this 'up there' with some of the near professional shots but I rather like this one I took of some purple sandpipers because to me it captures the essence of their resilience in the...

Another challenge with eBird which I came across recently concerns formerly common species which have become rare enough to require a description. I saw black-bellied tern in India...

I cannot help feeling that the Americans have done what we British have done in earlier times! I'm watching the Crown on Netflix - we were imperialists until fairly recently.

I think that it was a water tryant in Regent's Park, London.
It's good to know that the reviewers catch these things eventually.

I've seen some odd records on eBird. There was a 'winter wren' in Kent recently and I've seen some exotic South American species listed for what was obviously a pied wagtail. Not sure that I have the...

I, too, have worn varifocals for quite a few years. With those and my hearing aids (new), I sometimes feel as if I'm birding while wearing a sort of helmet. Having said that, I haven't had any...

I noticed this when some Dutch birders were doing a Western Palearctic 'big year'. All sorts of sightings suddenly appeared in Surrey, which were clearly erroneous. I imagine that the people in...

We have the same problem in Surrey. The local government areas were redrawn but we still use VC17 for birding purposes. It's a bit annoying at times as it means that totals in eBird don't coincide...

I saw avocet, pintail, short-eared owl and long-eared owl on the north Kent marshes yesterday. And rough-legged buzzard. And corn bunting.

Just wanted to check that this is a goosander. It's a photo I took in 2011 in the English Lake District.

I've not got any lifers listed for Christmas Day, in the UK or anywhere.
I'm sure I've done some birding on Christmas Day but I don't think I've ever gone out for the day.

I'm a big fan of eBird and use it almost every day.
