Right, its time to get seriously competitive. Whilst we’ve spent January and February birding along nicely, we’ve not really done what we set out to do yet, and thats out-bird one another. I would like to put an invite out there to any of you who fancies joining Team Jo (or Team Chris for that matter!) on a birding day out.
Now that Spring (and with it migrants) is nearly here, an idea that I would really like to get going is a day of Team Chris vs Team Jo to see who can pick up the most species within a set time limit (sort of like the Bird Race we took part in last month, but with fewer teams). If you’d be interested in tagging along with either team, please let one of us know and we can set a date and decide some details! Whilst I’m planning a full on trip for the future, we would like to go a couple of informal head to heads over the next couple of months as a warm up.
As an added bonus, I found out today that I featured in Birdwatching magazine’s March issue as letter of the month (yay!), which has won me a pair of shiny new binoculars. Having just bought a pair each last week, Chris and I now have a spare set for anyone who would like to borrow them an join us on a days birding, perfect timing!
Hands up if you want to join one of our teams, and let the battle commence!
