All the birders who view the galleries daily thank you for posting your photos but please take a moment to review these guidelines.
NEW Post photos up to 1 MB in size.
1. If there are already good photos posted of a particular bird, please limit yourself to posting your best 2-3 shots. If posting more than 2 photos, please use your judgement to decide if your photos add anything new. Photographers are encouraged to only post two or three of their best shots and then add a link to see more photos at their own website. Surfbirds offers free webspace for photographers. Sign up to get your own Photo Blog or your own Photo Album We urge users to take advantage of these free resources.
2. We welcome submissions of national vagrants, very rare county rarities and rare and noteworthy migrants. Site rarities or more regularly occuring scarce birds should be posted on the Britain and Ireland Scarce Birds Gallery (eg inland Grey Phalaropes, Wrynecks, Waxwings, Great Grey Shrikes etc).
