Big Farmland Bird Count Matchmaker

by Rob Beeson

I don’t know if you’ve ever had the misfortune to watch ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’ on ITV2. My wife became addicted to it during maternity leave and is still watching it now. Our daughter’s 3 in March.

For those of you not in the know, the show revolves around shrill American ‘4th generation matchmaker’ Patti Stanger who fixes up rich American people with gold-diggers less rich American people. It’s a bit like Cilla Black’s ‘Blind Date’ but with more bling, stretch limos and whiter teeth.

What’s all this got to do with the Big Farmland Bird Count I hear you ask? Not much really. But we have had several people contact us to say that they would be willing to volunteer their time to count birds on behalf of farmers who, for whatever reason, are unable to take part. We therefore came up with the idea of putting these kind bird lovers in touch with those enthusiastic farmers by offering a kind of 'matchmaking' service.

So, if you fall in to either of these camps please email and we’ll do our best to ‘fix you up’!
