Nothing would give Andrew and myself more pleasure that to doff our caps at the Nobirders and quit. That would be because they had got their act together and show everyday what Northern Ireland has to offer birdwise (with a bit of hunour thrown in) When that situation occurs Andrew and myself will quit and even give the Nobirders our support, However we are not holding our breath as these results show. You have to remember that the Nobirders have "upped" their game but here are the totals of photographs that they have put on in January AND February COMBINED against our total JUST for February
GENERAL BIRD PHOTOS
NIBirding 9 boo hoo!
LESSER WHITEFRONTED GEESE
NIBirding 0 although we are kinda glad we lost this one, but where were the other photos?
ROUGH LEGGED BUZZARD
RED NECKED GREBE
DARK BELLIED BRENT
THAYERS TYPE GULL ARDGALSS
NIBirding 0 Fair play to the Nobirders, we didnt see this one comeing, a bloody Squirrell!
NIBirding 0 This was in Donegal but we embrace this! Well done guys!
NIBirding 118 In view of the white wing gull influx this is again an embarrasment.
NIBirding 48 Beggars belief at their total.
NIBirding 0 They love their Black Redstarts, must get out and about, ok we wont bother!
NIBirding 0 No sign of the sound recording as yet? Where is it?
NIBirding 0 Where are the photos of the claimed Ferruginous. Funny how its at exactly the same spot as the hybrid?? Couldnt be a coincidence could it, surely not?
NIBirding not surpriseingly 0
Check the Nobirds 1st and 2nd January! No photographs, assume they have run out of available storage space!! How embarraseing!
NIBirding 6 We always win this one!
NIBirding 33 probably the rarest bird that will occur in NI this year.
RING BILLED GULL
NOBIRDS COMBINED JANUARY AND FEBRUARY 229
NIBIRDING JUST FEBRUARY 537
To give them a headstart we havent posted a photo with this post, shows how nice we can be! So as you can see there is a bit to go but the challenge is there for the Nobirders, its a whole organisation how difficult can it be?? Up your game and we will quit and support you,over to you!
