Ralph’s the guy on the left. The other chap is a little-known athlete from Jamaica with no known bird-watching records to his name ….. When he retires, perhaps?

Ralph writes:

A particular mention goes to Ian Stewart from Sidcup who from Ian Stewart who, either on foot or bicycle, has covered huge areas of the Borough and whose own totals for the year are quite staggering, 76 species seen from his garden, 100 in Sidcup and 146 in the Borough of Bexley. Such enthusiasm has occasionally been rewarded with the finding of some special birds including spotted flycatcher, yellow wagtails, whinchats, firecrests in the Glade and just before Christmas a Siberian Chiffchaff probably only 2nd record for Bexley and found through perseverance and checking out all the common chiffchaffs at Foots cray Meadows.
