BB Front Cover January 2009

The cover of the January 2009 edition of British Birds features my image of the Fair Isle Rufous-tailed Robin - the first record for the Western Palearctic. It is an image that many birdwatchers will have seen lots of times but what is the significance of it appearing on the front cover of 'BB'? Well, after suggesting an idea to the 'BB' editor in autumn 2008, the image becomes the first of 12 front-cover images to run throughout 2009 whereby the photographer or artist will donate their fee directly to the Fair Isle Bird Observatory fund raising appeal.

Nice one H - a worthy cause.

Superb idea Hugh - I also just loved the shot (another bird still to be seen!)

I think it will be time for a visit to Fair Isle in 2010!
