Just a quickie

#BWKM0 ND&B garden challenge
DAY 5

There were three birders who added a new species to their garden lists today, so take a bow:

Gavin H (Bridport, Dorset) - Little Egret
Ed S (Farncombe, Surrey) - Wigeon
Isaiah R (New Malden, London) - Egyptian Goose

This brings the number of garden firsts recorded across the competition up to a grand total of four. I'm sure that there will be plenty more to come.

A few cumulative totals have also come in, with the early leaders being Wes A (Capel, Surrey) on 54; Ed S on 52; Chris P (Romney Marsh, Kent) on 47 - bolstered by Little Egret and Red Kite; Isaiah R on 38; Ian S (Sidcup, London) on 38 - having had a good raptor day; Mathew B (Wrotham, Kent) on 30; Reuben B (Tufnell Park, London) on 29. If you have sent me an up-to-date total and it isn't here, please give me a reminder.

Blogger seems to be playing up a bit tonight so I'll leave it there for now.

But remember - the ultimate winner will be the observer who records the highest percentage of their garden’s/window’s historical list.

This is an impressive garden challenge to participate for all birders throughout this lockdown. We find so many interesting birds during this period from our window. We additionally assist people in Talking parrot sales chennai to enjoy the presence during the lockdown. People enjoy the presence of birds, especially now.
