Hello everyone! Update on me and BIBY

Hi everyone! Just popping in to say I'M BACK!!!! (and welcome for those who have joined in the last 12 months and I have no idea who this person posting is!)

I can't believe it has been a year since I went off and had bub. Time has absolutely flown. Loving life as a mum (even though I got one of those babies that doesn't sleep, has reflux and allergies), she is amazing. You will be happy to know that her second word was 'duck'. Still, I have missed Birds in Backyards, my first baby, so I am very happy to be back and using my brain for something other that the lyrics to Wheels on the Bus...

In terms of staffing here at BIBY - I am going to be working three days a week (Mon, Thurs, Fri) and Monica will be working 3 days as well (Tues, Wed, Thurs). I'm so happy she is staying on board with us. We have lots of big projects coming up and so life at BIBY will still be as busy as always.

I think, at least for a while, we will keep the photo challenges to once a month and see how they go. Always open to theme ideas of course. New newsletter coming out in a few weeks so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Hope all has been well with all of you - and that you are loving and using the new survey portal on birdata - that was a HUGE undertaking and I'm really excited about it and the functionality it has. We need data though so don't forget to sit and do your 20 min surveys!

Nice to read your voice again, Holly. Monica did a great job in your absence so the two of you working part time make a formidable combination.
