Birding Blogs

Birding Blogs – Blogs, from the words ‘web log’, are simply personal online diaries. Strictly speaking – so the purists will tell you – they should follow a definite formula: latest entries should be always be at the top of the homepage with older entries (or ‘posts’) below them; they should include ‘permalinks’ and readers should be able to add ‘comments’; they should be written on ‘blogging software’ and hosted – often for free – by blog companies like Typepad, Blogger, or Blogspot; and they should never be referred to as ‘websites’.

Like anything else though, blogs are evolving and these strictures are being broken down. Arranging posts chronologically will always be with us, but whilst using blog software certainly takes all the difficulties out of learning html (the ‘language’ websites are written in) some birders, especially photographers, find the narrow columns a little restrictive and prefer to build their own. In many cases what differentiates a birding ‘website’ from a birding ‘blog’ is difficult to see – but as long as it’s interesting and it’s a good read, does it really matter?

Why do ‘bloggers’ keep blogs? The world-wide blog community (the ‘blogosphere’) is generally friendly and welcoming: it’s a fun place to hang around in. Keeping a blog is really no more difficult than keeping a notebook – but it’s a great deal easier to share your thoughts and your sightings with your mates when they can read what you have to say in the comfort of their own home. Does that make them worth reading? Sure, some blogs lead to dead ends or are infrequently updated, but some of them are funny, irreverent, well-informed, well-written, or lavishly illustrated. Try a few out from the list below – you never know what you might find…

[Birding BLOGS are no different from other web logs – some people are inveterate diary keepers and others start the year with great enthusiasm and then fade away… I have listed those logs which are either still continuing well or have a considerable number of entries even when they have not been updated for a while… please let me know of any others out there… Fatbirder]

    BLOG, trip reports. Photos and more - I've now been birding for 25+ years on a predominantly local patch bias. This area is the south Essex region around Southend-on-Sea, which includes a number of different locations and habitats. It must be said that despite being on the coast it is severely over shadowed by other far better birding counties that bookend it, namely Suffolk and Kent. Even north Essex has better birding by a long way. That said perseverance over the years has brought the birders of Southend a number of decent birds

As this site is being written and managed by the Observatory Ringing Group it's content is mainly concerned with the ringing on the reserve.
