Another week has passed and sadly I didn´t have any time for birding. Looking on my schedule for the next weeks I definitely have to admit that I won´t have so much free time as until recently. I don´t know how exactly this lack of time will affect my birding activities, but it certainly has to be awaited that there will be less posts on average on this website.
Nevertheless, this gives me time to address an important subject, which I wanted to feature much earlier. As you will for sure know, I´ve published a birding guide for Franconia. So far, the guide has been received well (e.g. here) and I´m very grateful for that. However, recently I´ve been asked, whether I´m going to update the guide and the site descriptions on this website. Of course I said yes. There will be a 2nd edition of "A Birdwatcher's guide to Franconia", though because of this lack of time most likely not in 2016.
And there is the problem: For many sites there are only insufficient data. Nonetheless, soon I´m going to publish anything I have collected over the last months, which means that the descriptions of these "new" sites will be less detailed and shorter at first. However, whenever I get new information, I´ll add it to the particular site descriptions.
So the main goal for 2016 is to collect and improve data. Please, when you note mistakes or have additional information, whether to particular site descriptions or to the guide, feel free to contact me. Any kind of feedback is helpful.

It's wonderful that your guides are doing so well. If you need more help with the 2nd edition, please let me know. I think it's very important to have birding guides for this for traveling and local birders.
