Words that should be banned...

...from ornithological social media:

BOOM!

Rares

PG Tips (unless describing a brand of tea)

Grotfinch

Pink Stink

Dick's Pipit

Yay!

Mega

Posse

Sprite

Awesome

Cracking

Epic

Self-found

My thanks are due to several other miserable sods who have highlighted language abuse in our midst.

  1. I had an awesome self-found sprite on Wanstead Flats today as part of an epic morning with some of the local posse. If Nick had been here he would have said "Yay!", but luckily for you he wasn't.

  2. Love it Steve! 'Feels rare' could be added to the list!

  3. I haven't seen/heard most of those sayings, thankfully, clearly I don't see much ornithological social media, although "birders" is a term I'm not fond of.
