This must be a myth! as if you look at all the photographs of birders or as joe public daub them "Twitchers" then after the area is cleared there is no rubbish left behind?? this is best proven by the fact that none of the so called twitchers were wearing a single mask, therefore none were discarded.
so what can be gleaned from this obseration? Birders / Twitchers cannot catch the dreaded Covid 19, as they are immune. Yes that is right, or at least the hoards of people chasin another rare bird to land on these shores and getting flushed/chased all over the place believe they are immune.
So one wonders ,how is it that so many attending people get ill and have to either go to hospital. hoping to come out again , or self isolate.
A strange and wonderful state of affairs indeed.
Any way curbing the birding has a positive effect for many learning the songs or calls of the species and sorting out, in some cases, hundreds of mediore photo's laguishing on hard drives around the country., my self included a good cull will certainly, one might think, secure you some extrs space for the coming season?
These musings are just opinions and like bottoms every one has one.
So mini rant over lets get to it.
There was no good travel to be had, and being considered as vulnerable, non was undertaken all was local and really quiet. stopped taking the camera out opting for the scope instead. so no picture to put up and I have avoided the discarded mask except in the famouse "Dog crap in a bag" trees.even those hung above the purposly placed bins!! take from that what you will, and have your self a wonderful wasail
or whatever you want to call it.
