Patchwork Challenge Bird List

Patchwork Challenge started in 2013 and aims to get birders to spend more time looking around their own patch rather than traveling all over the country twitching birds.

Full details of the Patchwork Challenge can be seen at:

The patch I have chosen for the Patchwork Challenge is on the West side of the island of Burray in Orkney and is shown by the Green shaded area on the map below:

My Burray Patch
The rules allow you an area of no more than 3km², my patch has an area of 2.97km².

Below is an alphabetical list of all the birds I have seen on/from my patch whilst taking part in the Patchwork Challenge (2013/2014). I did not take part in the challenge in 2015 and will not be doing it in 2016 either.
