Alan Davies and Ruth Miller of The Biggest Twitch have come up with what they call 'The Biggest Idea': To see more bird species in a calendar year (2008) than anyone has ever done before!
Alan, a Site Manager of the RSPB reserve at Conwy on the North Wales coast, and Ruth, a freelance marketing consultant, have given up their day jobs and will spend all next year travelling around the world in a bid to set a new world record in birdwatching. This means they have to see over 3,662 different species of birds in twelve months.
As part of The Biggest Twitch, Alan and Ruth are raising funds to support the Mindo Cloudforest Foundation (MCF) in Ecuador, and World Land Trust is accepting donations which will be transferred in total to this fund.
They will be raising funds through Justgiving.com.
