It's Quiz Night Tuesday
It's been a little while since the last quiz so here it is back again.
Tonight's question is:
Approximately how many schools participated in submitting date for the (fabulous) BTO Bird Atlas 2007-11?
Whoever is closest wins a slice of my birthday cake on Thursday.
And of course we have to have a bird picture, so here are some Great Crested Grebes from Marbury last Friday.
According to the Bird Atlas, there has been a 22% increase in Winter range size since the previous 1981-84 Atlas, so a good news story for this species.
Good luck with the quiz. I will post all your answers and the actual answer tomorrow.
And the answer is:
Well on page 90 of the Bird Atlas it says at least 20 of the observers were schools. If there were a lot more than this I am sure Dawn will correct me.
the grebes are awesome!ReplyDelete

All the best Gordon.
If Rick Morranis..oops I mean Michael Gove had his way it would be zero. However given one of your recent guest blogs I would say it was low, 120 schoolReplyDelete
