Green Birder 2022 Pin Badge


Green Birder 2022 Pin Badge

Gary Prescott, THE Biking Birder, is a 65 year old retired school teacher with a passion for nature. Over the last 11 years he has been on 5 Biking Birder adventures but 2022 will be his toughest year yet.

His plan is to cycle for the whole of 2022, 1st Jan to 31st December, trying to find as many bird species as possible for his Green Birding Year List and to try to become the BIGBY, (Big Green Big Year), European Champion. To achieve this, he needs to see and identify 305 different bird species. The current BIGBY European Champion is Spaniard, Ponc Feliu Latorre.

During 2022, he is raising money for two wonderful and important charities. To say thank you to the thousands of children he has had the privilege of teaching over the decades, Gary is raising money for an amazing Children's Hospice in his beloved Birmingham, ACORNS CHILDREN'S HOSPICE. Also, to help nature, especially birds, he is fundraising for the RSPB.

All £3 from the actual sale of this badge will be donated to Gary's amazing fundraising activities during the year.

The badge measures approx 30mm in diameter and comes with a standard butterfly clasp pin attachment and accompanying backing card.
