Top of the Pops

Dave carried out an interesting exercise yesterday, and worked out the Top 10 sites and species that our readers click on. The results are slightly surprising.

Top 10 birding sites:
  • Lakenheath (Hockwold) Fen 8037
  • Titchwell RSPB 7276
  • Minsmere RSPB 6865
  • Blacktoft Sands RSPB 6707
  • Portland 6515
  • Rutland Water 5955
  • Cley Marshes NWT 5694
  • Rainham Marshes RSPB 5486
  • Flamborough Head 5065
  • Spurn 4916
and Top 10 species:
  • Honey Buzzard 16812
  • Osprey 16246
  • White-tailed Eagle 15614
  • Great Grey Shrike 14738
  • Cattle Egret 14183
  • European Bee-eater 14018
  • Common Crane 13488
  • Spoonbill 13430
  • Glossy Ibis 13239
  • Black Kite 12983
Which brings me neatly on to another site-related topic. Did you know that you can improve your favourite site? It's really easy for subscribers to add a picture of any site you've been to - just click the upload site pic button (on the right hand side). We're currently especially keen to get Irish pictures, as we're a bit under-represented.
