Safaritalk's "Big Year" 2015.

Take part in Safaritalk's "Birding Big Year" 2015.

 

If taking part, (purely for fun, although who knows, there might be a prize for the winner), these are the rules...

  1. Start a new topic, the title of which will be your Safaritalk Display name.
  2. Upload one picture per species, include when and where taken and tech specs.
  3. Only upload images taken on or after 1st Jan, 2015.
  4. No cheating and delving into photo archives, if you saw a bird but couldn't get a photo, too bad...
  5. Species can be from around the world, not just Africa, so if you get pics of those birds which visit your garden, upload them too.
  6. Do encourage other members taking part in the Big Year: it's a friendly competition so there can be friendly rivalry, but most of all it's about getting out there and enjoying birdwatching.

If you can think of anything else that should be included in the rules, please say below and I'll edit them into the list.

 

So, who's in?

 

Matt.

Although I posted no images in “Birding Big Year 2015”, I utterly enjoyed the ongoing posts which you, @@Soukous and @@Peter Connan made.

I especially appreciated that the “Big Year” images encompassed both safari and home birds.

Just to remind everyone posting in the 2016 big year, to put the dates of when the birds were seen, as @@Game Warden has been too busy with the software upgrade to repost the "rules" under 2016.
