Patchwork Challenge 2014

Evening all,

Any keen patch birders wanting a bit of friendly fun competition check out the blog link below. PWC 2013 had over 200 competitors and we are close to 200 signed up for 2014 already.

The competitors found some of the best rarities in the UK & Ireland this year including Mourning Dove, Semipalmated Plover, Pied Wheatear, a triplet of Fea's Petrels and a rather smart Gyr Falcon. The aim of the competition is to see as many species as you can in the year in a 3km2 area. The prizes for 2013 include a pair of Meopta binoculars for best find and we hope for something similar in 2014.

This year we also managed to raise 314 for the BTO Out of Africa appeal with a combined participants species list with 1 donated for every species seen. Check out the blog!
