  1. Since I am new here, I couldn't get the post and believe that I need to read previous posts to understand this one. Thank you for sharing it with us

  2. It is a complex issue. I will try to explain in isolation; the post refers to Emberiza calandra, of the family Emberizidae, order Passeriformes. The title of the post, 'Churn' refers to a geographical location in the South of Oxfordshire. The post overall is reporting the presence of 5 individuals of species Emberiza calandra, within the geographical location described. Further detail relates to the sex of the birds and also that a cumulative count has been performed. By all means read the preceding post - an excellent photo of Streptopelia turtur - but I doubt this will help you 'get the post' as it is best viewed in isolation. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance. Email:
