right this post is all about u the readers of this blog.
firstly i would like anybody who reads this blog to give some sudgestions on how to make this blog better
secondly,would any other birding blogs leave a post saying the use adresses of your blog as i like them all.they can be from anywhere in the world i dont mind(it will be nice hearing about species we call exotic eg, the debaitable japinese waxwing in poland) while mentioning the waxie does anybody have any sudgestions wether its wild or not(this could be quite a nice debate considering my lack of comments made)

warning; the following section contains a lot of young teen ranting and contains some things some people might find offencive so this is for those people who dont want to read it(but read it anyway its only me overexentrisising)(thats the longest word ive even mentioned this year)

and lastly why the hell does nobody put midlands bird news on the services.like picture this,your waiting in a house on saturday for news of the 13 waxies in redditch and i start to check birdguides and worcestershire source(link comming soon) for 2 hours waiting for those magic words;waxwing redditch now. and then i would of had enougth evidence to persuade my dad to take me. gusss what they wernt reported on any website so i didnt go.and on the next night im on those websites again.then a brief mention of a mans privates beggining with b (i say no more) as i realise that they were still there!!!!! and now as i write this they havent been reported again(hopefully what ive being explaining in the past few lines has happenes) so i have 2 sudgestions please pritty please put your news on these websites as soon as possible or leave comments on this blog about whats about and has anybody got any news of these waxies.

sorry for puttin you all in a bad mood

Worcestershire Source is manned by myself and Kay and we simply can't promise to get news on there in real time, although if I'm at home when I pick up news I do my best to get it out as quickly as I can. Fee-based services will almost inevitably get the news to you quicker. I hope you keep faith with us.

sorry for the misleading post.it wasent a dig at the news websites.i was just using them as examples from the array of websites i visited.there all great and i do acctually get more detailed news of worcester source than on some of the big companies eg birdguides + rba.this post is actually about birders not putting there news on these websites which gives the missleading idea that there not there.all i ask is that birders put there news on these brilliant websites.it will only take a few minuites.
sorry again by making you thinking its the websites fault, but its not its the birders who dont submit there news.although i do understand that some birders do submit there news and actions like this makes looking for 'rare birds'(which we all crave)a lot easier

Alas the only way to combat this sort of thing is to go and find them yourself. I know Redditch town cente is not the best place to go birding, but normally areas that I go twitching in usally give the observer something else, whilst searching of waiting for there appearance.

I second the fact that we need more people to report news to Worcestershire Source. Some of your own sightings are worthy of mention, so don't hesitate to drop me an email when you've been out and about. And don't worry - no offence taken. Remember, the site is only just over six months old. All feedback is welcome whether it's praising the site or criticising it. I'm happy to say that on the whole, comments have been positive.

i know the best way to get good things are to get them yourself.but being in high school im at school monday till friday 8:35 till 3:30(apart from fridays when we break up at 12:45 and it was because of this i found the yellow browed warbler) so this only rearly only gives me saturday(but i have to escorte my nan into bewdly and she is always so slow. this means i can get to do stuff at around 2pm(thats the reason i missed the waxies at upton warren) but by the time ive decided where to go ive got to do something else to do so its getting dark and its another day wasted in my book.so this leaves sunday.as you all know my local patch isnt exacly that good.i also havent got the internet.and ive got no contacts to ask whats about.so this means all the good stuff turns up near me.so i miss everything.im sure you now know how hard it is for me to get out at all apart from hollodays.but i suppose i could wait for a waxie to turn up on lickhill.(but i dont know where as all the berries have gone from here and all of stourport(from the areas ie seen)all ive got 2 hope is that one joins the regular starling flock.

i agree with you too reg the website could do with more submissions.it would really do it good.if you want i could ask the owners of lickhill to mention the website on there conservation bourd.i dont think they would mind(hopefully) if you think this is a good idea just let me know and ill ask.

midlands birder said...

oh and for the jap waxie.i think its plastic 2.but i wouldent mind one dropping in at lickhill.but i wouldent twitch one.
