This Week On WorldBirds

British Isles Complete
This week we have completed the list of most European Countries and now only need 3 species to complete Russia. The bird of the week for me probably because I have spent so much time looking for it, is the Caucasian Snowcock.

We have also got many other great photos from the Middle East, Asia and South America. Some wonderful birds have also been added to the Philippines list. Hope you enjoy the web site there are now well over 7000 pages to browse through.
Have a good week, I'm of in search of the Dartford Warbler.

It has been a great week at WorldBirds, I have made some great contacts and made new friends.
The Antarctic mainland list is complete and many of the Island lists are nearing completion. Thank you to everyone that has Contributed. The Ciconiiformes order is almost complete and the Answeriiformes order is complete.
I'm often asked what is my favourite bird, I don't have one but my favourite bird name is the Wandering Whisting Duck

We can now boast over 6300 species but my target foy 2008 is to get to over 8000 so I need all the help I can get.
Good birding and please keep sending the photos.

I downloaded Sharepoint from Microsoft. The result was a disaster it screwed the website theme, I lost all bullets and line breaks and the page background was alterred. The © symbol disappeared on over six thousand pages.
It took me almost a whole day to correct this. I am no longer taking part in the Sharepoint evaluation.
It looks a great program in you are starting a web site from scratch.
The rest of the week I have spent doing some Caribbean lists and finding images I needed to complete them.
We have had a great response and received many photos.
We will be doing more work in this area next week.
We have done some work on the Colombian list and added many South American Species.
We have many more photos to add which will be done over the next few days.
My favourite photo of the week is by Vitor Louzan
In the first week since installing a counter we have had over 1800 hits on the WorldBird Website.
I wish you all good birding next week.
