Appearing soon in a sidebar near you :grin:


Is there some competition with the Christmas day one to see which wins.

Ha! NEVER…there should be no competition in iSpot, only a desire to gather as many observations as reasonable. And they should not be rushed, always showing the subject in a most useful way and never without descriptive notes and a little user investigation; nor ever with a single photo, unless otherwise impossible.
The nature of iSpot is Observing, IDing, Commenting and Educating.

New Year’s Day forecast here is iffy - 50% chance of rain and gusty winds. But it will be fun to try and see a few things. My hope is to make a couple of records of things that I haven’t posted before - it’s a bit boring putting up blue tits each time.

Would not be boring if blue tits were next species to be hammered by bird flu, the ‘last sightings’ would be very important. At least this is one of the thoughts I have when recording the same thing from the same place at some later date.

An interesting thought there re bird flu.
It’ll be good to get as many iSpotters as possible engaged with the matter of observing on NY day. For some, circumstances might dictate more straightforward, shall we say, observations such as the birds at the feeder. Others might find the urge to blow away the cobwebs and observe while on a walk strong, no matter what the weather!

Let’s hope the weather lets us all get out there if we possibly can. :umbrella: :sunny: :cloud_with_lightning_and_rain:

a REAL success Maggie - thanks
Previous :heart: iFocals are a huge tribute to the commitment


still going strong but needs MUCH more support.
One of the most useful aspects is finding errors and problems
For example, everyone could help by reporting pictureless and descriptionless Observations
