Highs and lows of bird recording...

We'll do the low first, and it's bad news on the Greenfinch front... The female in the garden of 'BirdGuides Norfolk' was sat happily yesterday morning, but I noticed she was off the nest this morning. A quick nest check showed an empty nest, which had presumably been predated overnight. Another one fails...

The high was slightly more fun - Bird Atlas fieldwork in East Lincolnshire. Along with Kate, Nick and Rob from the BTO, we covered eight TTVs (Timed Tetrad Visits), which as you'll see was quite tiring...


Who said fieldwork had to be hard work?! We did struggle to find our quite how to record this pair of displaying Emus though...



To check how the Atlas is going where you live, and how you can help, have a look at the regional results pages.

Thanks to Rob and Nick for the photos (I think...).
