Just to confirm to JvR that I wasn't "ducking" the challenges but have only just returned from a nice long trip to Kruger, actually did put in my notice of absence at the end of my last challenge answers! :whistle:
So I am again ready to get into the bird guides once more and look forward to the next challenge. :thumbs_up:

All of those 'mites' with 11/12. Very good! :hands:

I got 9/11 due to a couple of needless errors, and then the nestling... :hmz: Happy though.

Looking forward to the next offering from JvR.

LBJ's again :| ... lots of them :|

I plead innocent to being the coiner of the phrase UFO (unidentified fluffy object) in the previous challenge, but thanks I'll use the term in future :D

And talking of the previous challenge - no wonder I couldn't find the little one - it was a sea bird again! Always my downfall in challenges... :evil:

Sea bird? :big_eyes:

:rtm: Back to your books, Dabchick! :rtm:

They are equally at home at the coast as around inland water bodies :lol:

I'm sorry about not stealing from you! :lol:

The victim of my word theft was Flick of PNF... :redface: :gflower:

Hi there

Sorry, I was out of the loop for the past couple of days.

I was the secret 100% achiever on the previous challenge. Got lucky on the UFO I guess. 8)

As I said before, it is a team effort in preparation of BBD :hmz:

Now to tackle the next one....

Cheers

If you got full marks on your own, well done :thumbs_up: , if not - stop gloating :naughty:

My answers are in, not too difficult overall (or at least that's how it seemed). The results may reveal a different story. :tongue:

One of the LBJ's led me on a merry chase and led to discovering a whole new species of bird I haven't taken any notice of before. I feel like Columbus or something. Very educational these challenges! :whistle: :D
