love reading these reports Mick - gives a much better indication of whats about, rather than a few 'headline birds' being listed.


HUGE bird news overlap nowadays on loads of different platforms - (Sightings round up on here, Twitter, FBook, WhatsAp, Wiki, Websites, Blogs, etc etc


Going back to an old style sightings page would be my preferred option - ALL the bird info on one place & something that members can contribute to each day should they feel the need....


ALL County Bird News should be on a CENTRAL DBC MEDIUM ie a Members Sightings Page ! - Its a no-brainer as far as I can see.....


In the meantime ( & again this is duplicitous, but pretty comprehensive)

but Oscar & a few others are keeping tabs on whats going on in the County on the "wiki" :- http://durhambirders.wikia.com/wiki/Latest_News


See ya in the brick hut
