There is an article, click here, by Dominic Mitchell, (check out the comments - I've been rather active) on the Birdguides website summarizing the avian events of 2015, yet referring to the decreasing number of BB rarity description submissions. What could possibly be going on? This austere bastion of Victorian ethics, The British Birds Rarity Committee being bypassed by a new generation of Wi-Fi connected, instant access, disciples. How dare they?
Why should there be a need for a written description when I've got a camera? What possible gain could be had by mistakenly reporting a Calandra Lark - shit happens, no one dies! It would seem that that this same bunch of alienated goons are responsible for many of the reasons for why the average man has voted out of the EU - they simply have no grasp of reality in 2016? Oh, but it's important!! Get the fuck - it stops you from doing a man's job!
