The event for twitchers (birdwatchers to the uninitiated.) is the Global Bird Weekend https://globalbirding.org/home taking place 17/18 Oct people not only in Gibraltar but across the world will venture out, as individuals or in teams, to record as many birds as they can – and raise money for conservation while they’re doing it. To participate, the organisers say, “just Stay Local and Go Birding and let us know how many species you see – Register on our website then go to eBird and get started. One of Global Bird Weekend’s aims is to have more than 25,000 people submit eBird checklists on 17 October- will you be one of them? (Please be sure to follow local Covid regulations about permitted numbers in gatherings)”
Sign in as quick as you can to get the chance to win a pair of Swarovski Optick bird-watchers’ binoculars https://ebird.org/news/october-big-day-2020-bigger-than-ever
