Speaking of all things social media, we thought we'd take this opportunity to shamelessly plug a few of the other BTO social media sites and some of the blogs we follow. The BTO itself exists on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, so why not like/follow/subscribe to keep up-to-date on what's going on in the BTO world. There are also various surveys on Twitter, including BirdTrack, Garden BirdWatch and WeBS.
On the blog front, if you've not already noticed, then check out the list of related blogs in the right-hand pane (unless you're reading this on a reader or on your phone!). Whilst it's not fair to pick out any blogs in particular, why not browse the list and see what takes your fancy. Recent posts on some of the regulars include portable Helgoland traps, Siberian Chiffchaffs, Dartford Warblers, hidden Kittiwake colonies, a Scandinavian invasion, Belgian Redwing, dawn to dusk ringing, and another cross-billed Blue Tit!
