November Media Interest

November was an exciting month for me.
First, it started with this photo of me in Birdwatching Magazine. They had bought the photo of a child and nest box from an agency and I was really pleased that the magazine had chosen one of me…an amusing start.

Then a local online newspaper, The Western Daily Press, picked up on my Chew Valley Gazette article about seeing my 4000th bird and being the youngest person to see this many. They interviewed me and published a piece online on 1st November 2015 https://t.co/o0MWldq6VS

Then, another local online paper, The Western Morning News, published an article online on 2nd November 2015 about my birding and seeing my 4000th bird

This is the article published in the Metro Nationwide about me on 4th November 2015. It was really exciting as lots of people I know had read the article, not knowing that I was going to be in it (The Metro is a free newspaper distributed in cities including London and Bristol, particularly on public transport).

So this is another article in the popular National newspaper, The Daily Express, also published on 4th November 2015.

This blog post is about the huge amount of media attention that I had in November, about my seeing my 4000th world bird in the summer. It was a beautiful Red-throated Tit which I saw in Swaro Plains on my first day in Kenya. For me, it’s all about the birding and not about the number, but it was still nice to have lots of articles about me. Even if it catches the interest of a few people and they start birding, then it will have been worth it.

It was really exciting to find these articles and not know that they were being published. Thank you to everyone who sent their congratulations and let me know if you see anything else. Roll on 5000!

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.
