American Birding Association – My Guest Blog

On 10 November 2015, The American Birding Association published a guest blog by me about my summer trip to Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya

Open Mic: On Being the Youngest to 4000 Species

I wrote about seeing Shoebill, Green-breasted Pitta and Red-throated Tit, my 4000th bird in the world.

As well as this, I wrote about seeing Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the highlight of my trip.

A few days later, American birding legend, Debi Love Shearwater, got in contact with me and invited me to join her Facebook page, World Girl Birders, after someone had put a link to my blog post on the page. I couldn’t join as I don’t have my own Facebook account, but it was fantastic to hear from her.

Also on the Audubon Magazine website, there is an article about me, which I am very proud of:
