Guidelines for submission of Trip reports

Your Trip Reports are always welcome. Here are a few guidelines which would help me greatly in processing them. Thanks.

1. Please use Comic Sans MS font - Size 12pt if you have it.

2. Highlight birds seen in RED and do not put bird names in all lower case letters eg. house sparrow = House Sparrow.

3. Please write the word for the numbers 1-10 eg. 7 = seven.
