WEL­COME

Bird Watching (UK) - - Welcome -

HOW­EVER MANY great birds you’ve seen in 2016, there are al­ways many more out there (just look at what an in­cred­i­ble au­tumn this has been, in Rar­ity Round-up, page 95), and our #My200birdyear chal­lenge will help you find them. Sign up be­low, and through­out 2017 we’ll pro­vide the ex­pert know-how to track down and en­joy all your must-see birds, from gar­den favourites like the Robin (and our fea­ture on page 24 re­veals there’s more to them than meets the eye) to un­usual visitors from afar. In the mean­time, you can do some ground­work with the help of our ID Chal­lenge (page 65), which looks at win­ter wood­lands, while on page 40, Do­minic Couzens in­ves­ti­gates the Wood Lark, one of those species that is all too easy to over­look, but which richly re­wards care­ful bird­watch­ing. What­ever you do this month, though, have a very Merry Christ­mas, and happy bird­ing! Matt Mer­ritt, Edi­tor
