Lockdown listing week 1

31st March 2020 | Marek Walford

So, that's week one of lockdown. Well done everybody! 26 birders are taking part in the garden year list competition and between them have seen 71 species. That's pretty impressive. The stand out bird is a Great White Egret from Dave Carter's garden. One birder in Bucks has had White-tailed Eagle and Cattle Egret so anything is possible!

The early leader in the lockdown competition is Finley Hutchnson with a score of 41, followed by Magnus Cooper on 33. If you want to take part please enter your lockdown total in the notes box. Don't forget, the winner will receive a copy of Britain's Birds and I've also added the Scilly Bird Report 2018 and the Birds of Berkshire (1996 edition) to the prize fund. What more incentive do you need? Have you got anything better to do?!
