People will be happy just to report what they see on the 5th of April whether its on migration or just pecking seed of a feeder.

Your article says "birders are coming together" and I took it in that sense. What you say now makes me think it is even better than I thought if we keep birders' actions separate from the hoi-polloi Chris Packham is attempting to enthuse. Lets do something lastingly useful with this prolonged but hopefully one-off opportunity, not participate in ephemeral love-ins.
