Look at this, 26 posts in this thread so far, and only 3 lists (not counting the pitiful "sub 5 club"!)

Digibirder - you canb add me to your list - I met you beside a loch in bad weather up in Scotland last year - I asked about your target sight on the scope. I also saw you from a distance at Rutland Birdfair but was too shy to say hello again.

So I guess my list is

Digibirder
Steve
Ollie

oh dear - not very impressive!!

Doug,

I just went in an edited it as soon as I saw your name appear at the bottom of the thread. How remiss of me to forget.

You, shy? I really don't bite you know!

Now then, I remember talking to someone else at Rutland and I can't for the life of me remember who it was!!

I definitely don't approve!!

The one drawback of Minsmeet is that at least two members will have cameras and I just know I'm going to get put in the gallery

Sort of devalues those ticks really - a bit like counting the clipped ducks at Slimbridge!
At other meets they have been seen hanging around the Loo's. Suggest camo ing oneself as a cow or something and keeping an eye out around the Loo at Minsmere. Some should be identifiable by the funny cream & Green head plumage. Several have suffered injuries, so look out for a limp!.

Alan, I think hanging around the bogs looking for a limp anything could be illegal....

I could have included some of those on my list as well, but didn't put them down due to their current rarity status. There's also the case of the disappearing T0ny - saw him at last year's Minsmeet.

Oh! And is that stringing? Mr digi-birder isn't actually a member - he just tags along.

Ill put him down as an urban myth then, as opposed to a mythter?. Not to be allowed by the rarities committee?.
If he's tagged, does that make him a potential escapee?.

I think ex-Members are still valid ticks (assuming they were members at the time of observation).
Mr.Digi-birder is a captive species and definitely stringy (the ticking thereof)!

Right, I'll go back and edit my list then.

interestingly I know someone who'll be at Minsmere on the day, is a member but "officially" isn't known to be a member.

Brilliant, birdman. I like it!

Never mind, you'll be adding a migrant to your list if you're coming to Oop North Bash!
