It’ll soon be the end of the month – the first month of PWC 2014, and the first month of any Patchwork Challenge for many folk. We hope you've enjoyed exploring your patches and have been rewarded accordingly!
When you've finished your patching for January, you'll be in a position to submit your scores – which you do via a form on this blog, somewhere to the right of the text you're reading now!
Essentially it’s the same process as you went through when registering for the competition, i.e. just fill in the fields and press the submit button. Please note that you do not receive anything saying your submission has been successful, but the text in the form should change to say something along the lines of ‘your data have been received’.
What we'll ask for are your name, patch, minileague, species total and points, just as we did for last year. In addition, at the end of every month this year we'll be asking you for your Birdtrack Birdrace details (see here and here for more info). Please remember that you can be in more than one minileague - for example coastal scotland and NGB. For January, please record all of these in the same box, but note that in future we will be providing tick boxes for these leagues.
After January, we will be collecting info on who's scores are eligible for the non-motorised league. Details of this league will be announced formally very soon - watch this space!
If there's anything thats not clear, you can ask via our twitter or facebook feeds, email us, or leave a comment on the blog.
