Hang on Hilda, Lizet most probably flew off in a hurry to snap the famous little crake. The birders are usually notoriously thin on the ground on forum over weekends. Bad hobby this!

Oh! Of course JenB! Thanks for reminding me of birders' habits over weekends. :D

I always copy the pictures on a word document, print it, and put it next to all the bird guides so that I don't have to struggle with the sometimes bad Internet connections PNF. That's why I had the picture of #2.

I am so proud about my 7/8 for challenge #12! I think I know which one I got wrong. :D I'm sure you will have 100% again. :dance:

Totally :big_eyes: . I got 8/8 for challenge no. 12! Maybe because of all the new birdie books, especially the photo onces.

Well done to you too Dabchick! :clap: :clap:

I am also looking forward to the next one. I don't want to be too optimistic, but it seems that Lizet is more lenient towards us than Johan! :wink:

@ Barryels: Well done and congratulations!! :dance: :dance:
