Dave Springman over at Pine River Review had run World Bird Wednesday for a couple of years, but had decided to hang up the telephoto and do other things - and I picked up where he left off. With a slight rebadging we were off.
I need to say that Wild Bird Wednesday benefited greatly from the people who had already teamed up with Dave - so if anybody is still in contact with him, tell him I say "Hello!".
Somewhere in the region of 60 to 70 people link there blogs up through WBW - and normally about 200+ people visit.
These are a (slightly self indulgent) collection of images from my "header" posts for WBW - I hope you enjoy them!
