Well, it’s time I started to update my BTO Birdtrack listings for this year.
The life lists, patch lists, regional lists etc. are coming along nicely and must say I am very proud of this particular bit of citizen science. However, what begs the question?Is when one is currently out of work, as I am, sometimes I feel these endless updates, are just being taken for granted. So, to “blow my own trumpet” Currently, I have amassed over 23,500 observations, some with detailed descriptions, also over 1,200 complete lists and 4,500 casual observations. Ahem! How many days of inputting. Your guess is as good as mine. Anyway, I will endeavour to add all my records (official and personal) and contribute to citizen science for hopefully, years to come.
I am also in the process of adding the 2011 Phenology events (currently 116 in number) to the calendar, which can be viewed from the home page or via the Natural Events Calendar link.
