Birdwatch Magazine Readers Choice Awards 2015 – My Nomination

In the November 2015 edition of Birdwatch Magazine, the Birders’ Choice Awards 2015 were announced. The lovely Steve Hale of Avon Birding contacted us asking if he could publicize that I was nominated for an award. We hadn’t looked at our copy yet, but quickly looked and found that I was nominated in the Best Blog section.

I was up against a load of brilliant blogs but especially Noah Strycker’s blog, Birding Without Borders, about his Big Year around the world. With all these fantastic bloggers, there was no way I could win, but that didn’t matter. For me, being nominated in the awards alongside the world’s biggest bloggers was winning – I had won my place amongst the them and that was amazing.

So thank you to Birdwatch Magazine for nominating me and to everyone (especially by friends and family) who voted for me.

Voting has closed now but I am looking forward to finding out how everyone gets on.

Lyrical, poignant and insightful.’ - Margaret Atwood

This is my story; a journey defined by my love for these extraordinary creatures. Because large or small, brown, patterned or jewelled, there is something about birds that makes us, even for just moments at a time, lift our eyes away from our lives and up to the skies.
