But since I moved away from Aberdeen I haven't taken part in one, not being able to drive is probably a big issue as is not knowing the counties I've lived in since very well. So what better way to get back into some crazy 24 hour birding than a Patchwork Challenge Bird Race! Who can see the most species in a 24 hour period on their patch, no need for driving (for most of us) and we should all know our patches pretty well by now.
The rules are simple, see/hear as many species as you can on your patch 00:00h and 23:59h on any day between the 10th May and 20th May. Over this period it gives everyone a chance to participate hopefully. Now all we have to do is pick a date and wait to hear tawny owl calling at 00:01h.........
|Hopefully one of these turns up at Hemsby mid-May.......|
|or/and one of these!|
