Wow StevieEvans! That's a huge number of birds! When I went (late July) I didn't see most of them! That may be because I was with three non-birders that weren't really interested and only went for me. They'd have moaned if I'd looked at everything! Luckily though I am returning on 20th August with my dad, who is interested in birds. I hope to see all those great birds! And a few lifers!!

Anyway, when I went to Minsmere before, I had a great time but some twitchers were SO patronising. Don't get me wrong, some seemed pleasant and glad that someone my age is a birder but one couple were very condescending to me. (I am 14 by the way). Just because I'm a teenager doesn't mean I haven't been birding for 8 years (which I have) and doesn't mean I don't know what a treecreeper is!!!! One person said - "There was a bird there then young man. Over there. On THIS tree. It's called a t-reeee-creee-per.
AAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
