I see on Birdforum the bucket lens guys and Ignoramous's are again ruining a twitch. I also see that they have been photographed and shamed.
Birders wonder why birds are suppressed. Host county birders seem to be very respective of the rare birds in their area, but it seems out of county visitors dont give a toss.
If I saw a rare bird on my farmland patch and the idiots behaved like they are at Lincs, I would never ever ever, put another rare bird out.
If anyone recognises these birders/ photographers they should name them and get them banned from forums and have their bird photographs removed.
Why are we moving so far back in the twitching world when we should be moving forward. This disgracefull behaviour must stop.
I dont think it will be too long before someone at a twitch will be limping back with a tripod leg up their jacksie.
Get it stopped and nipped in the bud I say, The more this is published on forums the better chance we have of pulling the plug on these fools. Yes it may be boring but it just gets my goat
