Yah, me and my big mouth...... I've just realized how lazy I've become birding wise.
Not to worry Cheetah and Louis, you can each have a corner. I think I'll have to stand outside the door! :lol:

Hi Ducklings,

Here is one quick last challenge for this year, just to get you all in ship shape for JvR's challenges.
Remember, the only way you learn is by challenging yourself so if you find this to easy, please move over to the Bird ID Challenge.

Here goes, please PM me. :D

Very well done Louis! :thumbs_up:
That's the way we learn, by getting them wrong. Strange but true. :twisted:

You have to have a go at JvR's challenges too. They seem difficult but the best way is to dive in and learn how to swim. :)

Hi

Just found this thread and wondered what happenend to the answers for the last challenge. :hmz: :hmz:

Have tried a couple of Johan's challenges and fare at about 50% each time, so I really think I need to go back to school for a while. :redface: :redface:

No answers yet, we only had one participant. :wink:
Rookie, don't be put off from JvR's challenges because they are difficult. You can only learn by having them wrong. :)
