I have been birding for 30 odd years, more seriously since 1987. In this time I have "found" three rarities. I birdwatch every day since being unemployed and yet i just dont find anything good. Looking at the Bird Reports and other birders blogs and web sites it seems that the same people find the rare birds, so what am I doing wrong, why dont I find anything?
Is it because I am a loner so have to rely on just my own observations to find anything? Is bird finding better with more than one person.
It is really becoming an issue with me so any tips and or assistance would greatly improve my patch working. What is the secret folks
