    That works out around 25 million pounds per bird :-)

    Anna. Still in small numbers. Look out for in the usual spots. Told the area near the rail crossing is often good. Probably best on a sunny day with no wind so not ideal conditions. Good luck.

    https://www.rspb.org.uk/community/ourwork/b/investigations/archive/2017/08/15/the-end-of-sally.aspx Myself and Joan T were probably the last people to see this bird. The whole episode makes me feel sick. Despite a significant birding community, well established conservation organisations, pond...

    The realistic outcome will be that Cley becomes a saltmarsh. Still a rare habitat but not having the same variety of wildlife as freshwater marshland. Unsure of how either the sea defences can/will be funded given the small number of houses affected and the obvious impact of global warming and...

    Thank you Pat for your kind comments as always. I really do not know what qualifies you make comments on bird photo's, given that your knowledge of the subject area would struggle to cover a postage stamp. As for any Sib Accentor in Norfolk, which does appear to be the only bird not to have...

    Graham. Alcina's orginal post was a joke. The suggestion that you join UKIP Royston Vasey is also not to be taken seriously. The points that you make about year listing and crowds are relevant, but I disagree on your stance of keeping bird news secret. At times there are probably too many...

    Pat. Beds is still landlocked. Spend a lot in London, which is vibrant, open minded, culturally diverse and, as far away as is possible to be from the characters of the film Deliverance, which no doubt you encounter daily in your life in Norfolk and take inspiration from. It is actually tragic...

    As fracking is likely to begin at various sites in Norfolk shortly I would not get in too much of a flap about putting some seed out.

    A bit harsh. A good number of rare birds have been mis id over the years. Even the "finest" have had records rejected by the BBRC. People are entitled to make mistakes from time to time which does not automatically make them stringers. As for the annual skua sp season I am sure that some skuas...
