Chosen as one of the world's best birding blogs of 2017

I love writing my blog, that's why I do it. I like writing about anything I want to. It is amazing that lots of people around the world like to read it and that my blog is coming up to 2 million views. That is just astonishing. Sometimes I try to work out how many different people that is, but I have no idea.

It was lovely to receive an e-mail from a USA birder and blogger who writes the Bird Watching HQ blog letting me know that he had included my blog in his list of Best Birding Blogs of 2017. He had only listed one other blog from the UK blog and the rest were from the USA. Thank you very much, that's brilliant. This is the link to his blog post http://birdwatchinghq.com/bestblogs/
