9/10 for challenge 12. Would have got 100% had I gone with my second option for number 10 :wall:

Still, absolutely delighted with that score. Well done to everyone else. :clap:

Hi Birders,

I'm happy to say that this book is still available. We have ordered it, and will go to fetch it tomorrow. This will then be the next book to win for 20 or more participants in the Bird ID Challenges:
