Twitchathon Results from 10th December 2013

The stand out winners of the BONE December Twitchathon were the "Eagles" with 49 species. Ted, Jo and Ros saw some great birds within the timeframe. The Orange-footed Gannets and the Windy Wrens also racked up some different species to the Eagles, just showing that in the ST Helens area, if you keep your eyes open you can usually see over 50 bird species in just 2 hours of birding! 
Best birding wishes,
