Birds Ireland » On what you might say to your young birding self...
Picking off an old notebook, I can remember seeing my first Kingfisher as if it was just this morning. I can relive the day, the weather, the moment with such clarity that it surprises me. My old notebooks are filled with sketches and notes on my observations. They are filled with diary-like entries on foreign trips that allow me to remember flights missed, places seen, people met and birds experienced. I am so glad that spreadsheets didn’t exist when I started birding. I think the actual act of physically writing, of putting pen to paper, helps me to cement those memories into my mind. I believe those who simply process their sightings into spreadsheets may not relive their experiences in the same way.
