One of the unusual features of this year’s Bird Race was the fact that seven teams out of 35 (that’s one fifth!) wanted to go together, rathen than compete on their own. One team, Flamingo, had to drop out, and the other, Flowerpecker, started late..and went on to win the race. But here are teams…

We stayed together throughout the day, made sure as many of us as possible could see each bird…. had chai, breakfast, and lunch, enjoyed ourselves very much…and one of the teams still managed to get the third prize, and that’s something to cheer about!
