The biggest twitch

Hard on the heels of the BIGBY (The Big Green Big Year) where a group of birders is going carbon neutral for at least some of their birding, I find out about ….


Two Welsh birders have teamed up to break the world record of recording the most birds in a single calendar year. The current record stands at 3662 species, or just over a third of all the bird species in the world.

It will be a massive undertaking and will no doubt be far from “carbon neutral.” It is all very interesting and must have taken an enormous amount of planning. It will be interesting to follow their progress. You can check out their web site and follow their adventures here.
