Somehow I managed 9/15. I missed two of the birds in the photos, so only put 13 answers.

Thank you TrevorC!

Hi all

Only 8 entries so far so please keep them coming :D :D

Just to let you know that I will be away from tomorrow with limited connectivity so will not be able to post the answers on Friday as planned. I will only post these early next week if that is OK - that gives a bit more time for any late entrants :wink: :D

Wow! You have all done very well with TrevorC's challenge, especially Jaytea! :clap: :clap:

Thank you for a great challenge TrevorC! So sorry we couldn't participate.

Thank you also for the answers to your challenge Gatita! We were so silly to change our answers because we thought those birds are not in Germany! But it was a very nice challenge! I'm so glad you had so many participants! That's great! :clap: :clap:

Looking forward to challenge #4/2015 tomorrow Imax! :thumbs_up:
