Note your sightings
You’re out walking in the morning and you see a bird of prey, but you don’t know what it is!
You’re at work and you see a beautiful flower out of the window.
You’re eating dinner outside listening to a songbird, but you’re not sure which one.
If only there was a way to keep a note of your descriptions so you can look them up later. But wait!
Start a journal! It’s easy and simple, and it’ll come so naturally that you will wonder why you’ve never done it before! It can be for birds, mammals, butterflies, whatever you like, but you can record what you’ve already spotted and use field guides to identify new things you’d like to see
In no time at all you can start compiling your own portable field-guide that you can take with you.
