We've talked about sewage, butchers, Italian sandwiches, paintballing Rooks, an albino Storm Petrel, a Scottish Red Kite in the Azores and wrecks of Puffins in Spain and Kittiwakes in the Pyrenees. We've also brought you news of who wins out of Buzzard versus Chimpanzee and Tawny Owl versus Stock Dove and plenty of posts about Glossy Ibis. But what have been the most popular posts?
