DO YOU WANT TO en­joy your best bird­watch­ing year ever? If so, #My200birdyear is Bird Watch­ing’s chal­lenge for bird­ers of all ages and abil­i­ties, en­cour­ag­ing you to see 200 species in the course of 2017. They can be any­thing from the birds you see on your back gar­den feed­ers, to seabirds pass­ing off­shore as you re­lax on the beach. There are no re­stric­tions on where you do your bird­watch­ing, and you won’t have to wait for your ticks to be ap­proved by a com­mit­tee – it’s all about en­joy­ing new birds, and learn­ing more about the wildlife all around us. Here at Bri­tain’s best-selling bird­watch­ing mag­a­zine, we want to in­spire you to get out and watch­ing birds, whether it’s on a half-hour stroll dur­ing your lunch hour, or a week-long bird­watch­ing trip to an avian hotspot. We’ll pro­vide mo­ti­va­tion, ex­pert ad­vice, and an on­line com­mu­nity to cel­e­brate your mile­stones, your best days of bird­ing, and your most mem­o­rable sight­ings, plus there’ll be free con­tent and good­ies from our part­ners. In the mag­a­zine, we’ll show you how dozens of species that have eluded you in the past are within easy reach, by mas­ter­ing ba­sic ID skills and field­craft, by be­ing in the right place at the right time, and by tak­ing the chance to watch birds when­ever and wher­ever you can. Sign up now at bird­watch­ing.co.uk/my200 to get up­dates, ex­clu­sive con­tent, com­pe­ti­tions and dis­counts, plus the chance to go bird­watch­ing with mem­bers of the Bird Watch­ing team at key UK bird­ing lo­ca­tions. Get ready to en­joy a life-chang­ing year – one bird at a time! We’d love to hear a bit about you and see your pho­tos while you’re out bird­ing so get in­volved by send­ing them to us at: bird­watch­ing@bauer­me­dia.co.uk
