To anyone who knows and birds this area will understand what an impressive list we have achieved for such a small area with only one reservoir and no river. Many thanks to regular contributers, NK. DJS and Jen. CK. DCB. HC. Denise S. Halifax Birdwatchers and
B.O.G. members, not forgetting members of the public who pass on a great deal of sightings throughout the year.
A full list of 2010 highlights with areas and credits will appear on Nigels Queensburybirders website as soon as Ive worked out how to do it.

Thanks again for all your efforts and I wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR and a bird filled 2011.
All the best, Bri.

I'm a bit under the weather right now, hic, to appreciate your full list but you will have no problem compiling your report on the website. Let me know your intentions and I'll set up the docs and links with the greatest of pleasure. All the best to a true dedicated birder.
