We're men- birding men, we 're men with bins
we don't hang out in museums playing with skins;
we're men,- birding men, we bird with chicks,
we bird around the hotspots looking for ticks;
we all know our Acros- so don't give us grief or else you'll get our Mannfrotos!
We're men- birding men, we eat out of tins,
If you need new birds then send for the men with bins!

lol, be afraid, be very afraid !! Great "rogues gallery" photo and thanks for the warning about them being armed and possibly dangerous wielding Manfrotto's lol For interest, what is the average tick list for a year and is it UK birds only as I'm not sure with such tightened security these days that they'd let you all on a plane !!

no idea what the average tick list is per year in GB- I see about 200 but only watch 3 counties really and am normally out of the country in spring and autumn;
Someone travelling a reasonable amount in Britain should probably get about 250;
A Big Year contestant should get about 340.

Waxwings were at Branodunum near Titchwell
