As part of Bill Oddie's article in the "Play" section of The Times of Saturday 6th January 2001, the following appeared:"WANT TO find out which species you're most likely to encounter in Goa? Or the best ornithological station in Kazakhstan? With a mission objective to link up birding enthusiasts from all over the globe, the Fat Birder will probably know the answer. Though the site was actually set up in the UK, it is fast becoming an invaluable database for the globetrotting birdwatcher, with more international bird-related links than you'll find anywhere else. It also includes fun, quirky sections with apocryphal birding tales and urban myths, entertaining essays on twitching, a guide to bird art and a quiz."Mind you, Bill, don't know how you managed to see a quiz, I hope you hadn't been trying to save Spanish Birds by pulling corks from bottles.
