Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the end of Ruth's and my Victorian 
Big Year – or VicTwitch.

In 2010 we saw 392 species in Victoria – a record that still stands today. 
Completing any sort of a Big Year requires a huge amount of commitment and 
planning – and, most importantly, it requires help and assistance from a 
network of friends, acquaintances and other birders. On Facebook, in the 
birding-aus group, I’ve posted a selection of images that show some of the 
highlights from the year, most notably our trips away to the far-flung corners 
of the state, and just a few of the people we met up with along the way. We 
covered all the birding regions in Victoria and saw many state rarities – and, 
of course, we missed a number of birds that were seen by others. That year will 
always go down as a highlight in our birding career not least because of the 
firm friendships that we made that continue to today.

Happy New Year, everyone!
